The light conditions meant that only 4 races were sailed at the French Nationals at Quiberon this weekend. Ian Pinnell and Alex Davies (GBR9190) scored a convincing 1,1,6,1 to take the title from an in-form Philippe Boite and Mathieu Fountaine (FRA9175), With Michael Quirk and Reeve Dunne in third, proving that Australia has its eyes on the Gdynia Worlds.
Andy Smith is back from injury, taking 6th with Tim Needham, back in form ready for Poland, and Tim Bird once again proved his light-airs credentials, taking 11th in the 40-boat fleet with Adam Kenney (GBR 8914). Tom Darling and Elliot Wells (GBR8970) were 13th, proving strength in depth for the British fleet.
Roll on Gdynia!
