Medium breeze and dramas!
The RS:One Class, in partnership with the FFV and the Cercle Nautique de Loctudy, is organising its 2016 European Championships from 4th to 9th July in Loctudy, France.
The championship, open to all, allows European racers to compete through innovative race formats like The Pulsar (compact slalom, America's Cup style) and Marathon (long distance). Courses are set up in a way that the on-shore audience can enjoy the races.
RS:One is a multi generational, one-design windsurfing board featuring an easy and light performing 7.8 rig. Espoirs (youth under 22 years old), Seniors (under 40 year old) and Masters (older than 40), men and women, can race together on the same starting line in a collective fleet.
3 "Regatta" racers at the menu for this last day of competition with 8 knots of breeze requiring tactical and physical skills.
The drama came from the women fleet. Postec Taina has led the whole week of race but lost her first place under the attack of Lebars Louise claiming the 2016 European tittle. Marsaudon Capucine finish third.
In the Men fleet, Jolivet Maxence takes the 3rd place, Abiven Maxime finished second and Salette Florian becomes the European Champion.
We are now looking forward to see how Lebars Louise and Salette Florian will represent France at the World Championships in Taiwan!
