This morning, tired faces could be seen among every crew. Today was the last day of the 33rd edition of the Student Yachting World Cup. France was already known as the new champion yesterday. Switzerland, second, was six points ahead Team USA. The EPFL team must secure their place.


Today, because of the tide, only one race was held. The committee chose a windward leeward race. This race is for the 'Pornic Trophy'.

This morning, the teams had to come earlier to start the races before the tide refused to allow them to get back at the harbor. The wind was very low, with only seven knots coming from South East. All the teams did a fair start. This race was without spinnakers. England led the first lap, then France lacked second at the mark. The boats were not sailing so fast. On the second lap, all the boats were following the others in an Indian line.

After the dog legs during the second lap, Switzerland overtook its competitors and took the first place. England was then second. Eventually, Switzerland won the race which confirm their place at the general ranking; England finished second, and then came the Defender. England with 75 points overtook Australia 76 points in the general ranking. They are now respectively fourth and fifth. France finished this race sixth.

Back to the harbor, France from Kedge Business School celebrated their victory on the pontoon after 18 outstanding races on the water. The sun was high to illuminate ‘la Noeveillard’. The AGPM trophy for the general winner of the coastal races also belongs to France. The trophy of the city of Pornic belongs to Switzerland, winner of the race of the day and also second at the general ranking. The USA finished third and complete the podium.
