Craig's first Euro race this year is the Mini Med.  He has his Seattle crew member Kurt with him for this opener.
It looks as though there are 4 Zeros entered among the 8 series boats, including Joel Miro the ex-Spanish Figaro champ & current builder of the Zero.
There are 9 protos entered & the weather forecast is good.
You can follow the boats thanks to sat tracking.
The race site is open at:

Hey everyone,

They have a race tracker that's updated quite frequently. Craig is doing well, currently in a drag race with a brand new Manuard proto (Speedy Maltese)...

pretty cool video of the start here... looks pretty lively, especially Joel (677) losing his spi at the end.

The last phrases of the video are something like:

a- 'They just broke the bowsprit'
...
b- And now what?
a- What you want to do? Just continue without it...

For those who did not check the results on Leo's site - Craig finished 3rd in Series - a podium finish in his 1st Euro race as skipper.
