Student Yachting World Cup now underway in La Rochelle
Sun, 28 Oct 2012
The 32nd edition of the Student Yachting World Cup (SYWoC) got underway this morning and will crown the next Student World Champion on Friday, November the second. Here at La Rochelle, 14 crews are representing their universities and countries. Following a short briefing at the SRR, during which the jury and the race committee explained the specificities of this edition, each crew prepared their boats for the practice race planned for the afternoon.
Unfortunately, due to extreme weather conditions, and in order to preserve the boats and the security of the participants, this regatta was cancelled. This bad weather gave everybody more time to adjust their Grand Surprise boats.
At the same time, the race village, at the harbor 'Les Minimes', provided to everybody, hot beverages and plenty of food.
The opening ceremony has been the opportunity for everyone to gather and share his experience. The official SYWoC Trophy has been returned by Euromed Management that claimed ready to defend the Cup again this year.
Regatta starts tomorrow with two windward-leeward races scheduled and everybody is focused on the main goal: becoming the next World Champion.
