The team of Michael Quirk (AUS) and Tim Needham (GB) have won the 2019 505 Euro Cup Cannes, the first leg of the Euro Cup series.

Sailed at Yacht Club de Cannes, the final day of the Euro Cup Cannes was cancelled due to too much breeze, but the participants enjoyed some really tight competition throughout the regatta.

"Fantastic sailing. The racing was so close the entire time," said competitor and former World Champion Ian Pinnell.

In what has become one of the highlights on the annual 505 calendar, the Euro Cup is a four-event series that takes place across France, Italy, Germany and the UK. There is a winner determined at each event as well as an overall series winner based on cumulative scores from three of the four regattas.

"Where else could be better to come and sail over Easter than the South of France," said competitor and former World Champion Howard Hamlin. "It's great location, great back drop, great sailing and all so convenient. I can't wait until next year."
