27 J/80s were on the starting line and Club C.N. Pornic was a wonderful host for the event. The fleet was treated to a variety of wind and sea conditions over the three days-- light winds, flat seas Saturday and Sunday and Monday choppy waters with good breeze. The competitors sailed 8 races (6 windward-leewards and two coastal races).
Behind JULES was INTERFACE CONCEPT 2 skippered by Gildas Mahe, Emeritus Figaro sailor. Were it not for one bad race to count, Gildas and crew could have easily won the event, their record was a 1-5-14-3-1-6-1. Third was Ludovic Gilet's JACUZZI. Fourth was INTERFACE CONCEPT 1 sailed by Jean Charles Moriceau, a good regatta for this team that is currently doing well in Coupe de France rankings. Christine Briand sailed her J IL DE RE into fifth and Bruno Trouble raced COYOTE sixth. For more French J/80 sailing news.
