French Olympic Sailing Week (otherwise known as Semaine Olympique Francaise), will get underway on the 21st of April and run through to the 27th of April. US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics are in Hyeres, France to take part in the event and prepare for the pinnacle in sailing competition, the 2012 London Olympic Games which begins in only 100 days.

'Our European season is in full swing,' said US Sailing’s High Performance Director/Head Coach Kenneth Andreasen (Tampa, Fla.). 'Today marks 100 days until the Olympic Games begin with the Paralympic Games following 16 days after. Our team is training in Hyeres this week, and, together with our Team coaches, working on a number of Games-specific goals. We have been working hard over the last four years to put a plan together where our sailors will peak at the right time, and this event is one of many steps toward the end goal.'

There are 26 USSTAG athletes competing at this event, 15 of whom have qualified for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Teams.

Competing in the French Olympic Sailing Week:

2.4mR – Mark LeBlanc (New Orleans, La.)
