Darmanin said, “This race is the Rio edition one such thing happens. When wind speed increased, I just jumped on the boat of Darren Bundock the coach’s boat and we highlighted it ashore, I was lucky that the yacht had the spare sitting. We managed to keep things in the right place and got ready for the race 20 seconds ahead of its beginning.
