For the first time, all 2024 Olympic classes have gathered in the host country of the Paris Olympics, competing just down the coast from the official sailing venue of Marseille. It's the second time that all classes will gather in 2022 before mostly splitting off into single class events, World Championships, and test regattas in The Hague, The Netherlands in preparation for the combined 2023 World Championships.

Over 1,000 competitors representing 50+ nations will take to the water for the French Olympic Week in Hyères's notoriously challenging conditions.

From the US Sailing Team:

On top of the attractive exposure to international competition in epic conditions, the 2022 French Olympic Week provides another valuable opportunity for athletes who sailed the Trofeo Princesa Sofía in neighboring Spain earlier this month.

"We're grateful to have another event so soon after Palma," said USST 470 athlete Louisa Nordstrom. "We left the Princess Sofia Regatta with many good takeaways. Hyeres is a great opportunity to apply lessons learned and have another go with the international fleet."

"This regatta represents another stepping stone as we work toward our larger goals for the squad," said USST 49er coach, Mark Asquith. "The lads are feeling refreshed after some time off to reflect on the Princess Sofia and are looking forward to continuing on with our progress. We also have Nevin Snow and Mac Agnese joining the US squad for this regatta and the whole team has synced on insights from Palma and calibrated our approach to Hyères."

Keep up with the regatta:

Monday, April 25 - Opening Ceremony & first race day of Qualifying Series
