Sail-World.com : 505 Easter EuroCup Regatta

505 Easter EuroCup Regatta

505 Association
Easter EuroCup Regatta - 57 boats have found their way to sunny Cannes - crews from Finland, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, Italy, France, Switzerland - and Ian Pinnell sailing with his father in law.

Day one weather forecast promised 25 knot - and they were there! - all 25 and they have taken some of their friends with them so I believe we had well over 30 knots in the gusts - and on top of that two-three meter waves. The german team Kellner/Schoeler was really fast that day, they won both races - it helps a lot when you can put a 2 m+ and 105 kg+ (a lot of stones) crew in the wire - the rest of us struggled with the conditions, swimmed a lot, some managed to break their mast (like Ian) and others suffered from other gear failures.

In the second race that day we made a 'perfect' nosedive and tipped over - actually my first nosedive in 22 years, and besides that we capsized the normal way twice, however we still managed to get in as number six - that illustrates it was a windy day I guess.

Day two started with a lot of rain - somebody whispered 'Hammo Island!' - but it cleared up in the afternoon and we got another two races in. The first one was won by the French team Broise/Jamonieres in 15-18 knots, the next one was won by us.

Day three races sailed in 15-20 knots - The German team Boger/Dehne won two of them and we got another one.

The final outcome was that Kellner/Schoeler won, Swiss team Stauffer/Jacot have sailed consistently and got in on a second overall and we were happy to get on the podium as third.

At the prizegiving there was a lot of speeches in French - which took a long time - especially when you don´t understand a word of it. but in general I think it was the best French Eurocup in many years - we got seven races on perfectly set courses, just a minimum of waiting time between races, gate starts.

Only downside is, if you bring your wife - there is a lot of very expensive shops in Cannes, so you have to hide her credit card.

It would be nice to see some UK boats there next year - especially when you consider the fact that it's possible to sail the first weekend in Italy just one hour from Cannes where we this year got six good races - so two nice regattas at the sunny Mediterranean in just one week in the spring - just do it!
