2ème de la Women’s Cup © DR
L'équipage féminin de Prince de Bretagne n'a pas raté son entrée en scène sur la Women's Cup ce week-end. Julie Bossard et ses équipières terminent deuxièmes de leur première compétition de la saison sur le plan d'eau de Pornichet. Une belle satisfaction pour les Princesses qui gagnent une place par rapport à leur précédente participation sur cette régate féminine qui n'a plus à faire la preuve de sa valeur sportive.

Interview de la jeune skipper à l'issue de ces deux jours sur l'eau marqués par les caprices du vent, l'intensité sportive, et la fraîcheur de cette épreuve qui porte le rose de la campagne 'Because I'm a girl' pour les droits des filles dans le monde.

Les Princesses deuxièmes de la Women's Cup, c'est une belle satisfaction ?

'Oui, c'est top. Les conditions n'étaient vraiment pas faciles dans du très petit temps, avec le vent qui tournait dans tous les sens, oscillait entre zéro et six noeuds, et des vagues bizarres. On n'a pas pu courir beaucoup de manches, mais on a bien progressé sur ces deux jours. On est parvenu à rester hyper concentrées sur la vitesse, et on a fait des bons choix tactiques.'

Sur l'eau, le niveau était bien au rendez-vous...

'Il fallait d'emblée être dans le coup, et ne pas faire de grosse erreurs dans ces conditions favorables aux écarts. Au début, on a eu un peu de mal à retrouver les sensations de petit temps à bord d'un J80, on termine trois et deux la journée de samedi. Mais aujourd'hui, on finit deuxièmes derrière l'équipage de Camille Lecointre (La Galerne-Chicabreizh), 4è aux derniers JO de Londres. Trois régates, trois fois sur le podium : on termine sur la deuxième marche au général, une place de mieux que l'année dernière. On regrette juste de ne pas avoir pu disputer d'autres manches pour se battre un peu plus pour la victoire. '

Et à terre, il y avait aussi une vague rose ?

'Trente équipages de cinq filles cela fait du monde et beaucoup de rose. Ce soutien à l'ONG Plan et à sa campagne pour le droit des filles dans le monde, cela participe beaucoup au succès mérité de cette régate féminine. Forcément, c'est sympa de courir pour la bonne cause. Sans compter qu'entre les manches, on discute beaucoup entre nous, entre les différents équipages qui viennent d'un peu partout. Cette Women's Cup, c'était une bonne ambiance et un belle entrée en matière pour la suite de la saison, et une belle préparation aux départs en vue du prochain Spi Ouest France... '
