Valencia has welcomed the eight Champions of the 19th Trophée Clairefontaine with a beautiful sun and a perfect Force 3 wind.

Eight legs have been raced this afternoon in the heart of the Marina Real Juan Carlos 1st, the port of the 2007 America's Cup. As a prelude to the official legs starting tomorrow, the crews have raced the Warm-up Rhodia as a 'dress rehearsal' before the main nautical show. Loïck Peyron won the big prize, just in front of the stems of the Swiss Luc Dubois (Alinghi Red) and the American Ed Baird (Alinghi Black).

General ranking of the Warm-up Rhodia:

1- Loïck Peyron (Fra), 64 pts
2- Luc Dubois (Alinghi Red - Sui.), 50 pts
3- Ed Baird (Alinghi Black - USA), 50 pts
4- Michel Desjoyeaux (Fra.), 37 pts
5- Nicolas Charbonnier (Fra.), 36 pts
6- Fernando León (Esp.), 36 pts
7- Jean-Pierre Dick (Fra.), 22 pts
8- Claire Leroy (Fra.), 17 pts

Rita Barberá Nollá, Valencia Mayor, welcomed the crews and the presidents of the French and Spanish Sailing Federations in the City Hall at their arrival on the Valencian soil: 'Valencia is a forward-looking city, building its development on Culture and on Sport. Therefore, it was natural to host such an exceptional event reuniting some of the best sailing champions, including the winner of the last America's Cup raced here. This Trophée Clairefontaine de Valencia is a true nautical show right in the middle of the city, close to the public and free of access. I'm glad that each start will be preceded by an operatic aria so as to reunite Culture and Elite Sport in a single space for the pleasure of the public'.

The Trophée Clairefontaine de Valencia will be raced on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 September on this world-famous natural Sailing Stadium.
