Talking of La Rochelle and the Europeans
A great time was had by all (I think) superb afternoon thermal winds giving exciting racing for all in an interesting atlantic swell/ chop.
A big thanks to all the organisers, JFD and FR especially of the Fench Association for putting a lot of time in and making it happen and an enormous thanks to Ron Duffield for coming over and measuring us all.
Thanks also to the team at SRR for running the event and of course thanks to all 92 competitors for making it the sailing event it was and of course the people who came 5th and got the special privilege of writing a report too, now there's something to aspire to!
Overall results were Andrea Bonezzi 1st, BB Johsen 2nd, Simon Mussell 3rd, Soren Andreasen 4th, Jan Von der Bank 5th.
first lady was Jaqueline Rufenacht
fist Junior was Tom Hooten
first master was Stuart Jones
