Looking at the scheduled start times, max number of races (12) and social timings I think your guess (2/4/4/2) is probably correct for an initial plan. A final day Prize Giving at 1600 with a 1000 first start suggests (to me) a "no start after 1300" on the Monday, so 3 races is possible if needed but I suspect 2 is the plan.

Of course we know (and appreciate) that the French are masters at throwing extra races in on days when the weather is good!

so apparently the only spare we're not taking is the spare hull...

Anyone else on tomorrow night's Portsmouth - St Malo crossing?

We should be on tomorrow nights Portsmouth - Caen ferry assuming we manage to get boats and people organised with no drama :)

We are for a change taking minimal spares so scaled back to spare boom and spare ovi pole only plus tools, sticky stuff etc.

Barnsie i have the spare front tubes (carbon and alloy) which i havent done anything with yet. Do you need me to bring any of them to Carnac as spares?

Forecast looking like it might favour the larger teams so all those on their diet plans can hit the pies in advance..

Not sure we are going to need too much sunscreen :(

Just a gentle reminder as i've had to goto Halfrauds to purchase:

If you are driving in France YOU MUST carry a twin pack alcohol breathalyser kit...it is a legal requirement! My issue for you guys is that these may not last the ferry journey

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Have fun and good luck to you all!!

Also you need a floresent vest for each person in the car and it must be readily accessable if inspected. I.e. not in the boot but in the cockpit.

See you all there.

Race 1 finally got underway yesterday afternoon in very strong and gusty conditions. In the end after a lot of swimming by almost everyone it was Tony and Char who crossed the line first, followed by Alain and Francois, Allan and Toby, Mark and Allan and then Crispin and Guy. Unfortunately Tony and Char were OCS.

Today we have woken to clear blue skies and less wind. 4 races are planned.

Just like to say a massive thanks to everyone who helped us sort our boat out this weekend. Infact thanks to everyone for all the help, tips and advice that took us from last by a long way to 4th from last on the last day! Gutted we couldn't actually finish the last day, though just as well we left when we did as we only made the ferry 30 mins before heading to rainy England.

Finally a massive thanks to the French for putting on an awesome Euros despite the over enthusiastic tent breaking and boat breaking winds :D

See you all at the next event, Barnsie we may have another order for you....trailing the boat home didn't go so well :oops:

Hi everyone
Thanks a lot for comming (once more) in France to help french B to improve on the water.
It was a fantastic Euro for Walter and I, as we made good results for us (even in strong wind despite our 135kg...). 1 upwind mark at the front (YEEEHAAAA!!), before 3 capsizes... :?
A race of 4, and often not so far from very fast boats.

We couldn't be with you for evening socials as we have to go home with families.
I could also apreciate, again, the democratic rules of the crew union.

hope to see you soon

I would just like to add to the fact that JB/Walter, Alain/Francois sailed a very good series and took it to the Brits. Both teams sailed well and with less swimming, JB/Walter will also be up there in the mix. Seb/Sophie had their moments as did a couple of other teams. Looking good for the French teams in the future.

Now back to work and looking forward to my next B14 event :lol:

What a cracker :D
A great event well supported by most of the people within 5 miles of Plerin, friendly, upbeat and excellent sailing in a variety of conditions.

Hats off to Tony and Chin Sca for demolishing the fleet in the 1st race, yep, you may have been a metre or so over the line at the start, but you finished a country mile in front of the rest of the fleet, only boat to carry their kite on the 3rd leg.... 8)

Seb & Sophie just did the business on and off the water as did all the French boats, not least of all of the new Anglo Saxon threat, the Cadre brothers who with a combined age of 111 surely must be in hot competition for the new blue badge award ahead of the current holders and team SAGA who (only) have a combined age of 103!

Disappointed for Mark and Kathy, but at least you've got age on your side...you'll be back!

Jerry and Leaky. What can I say, lots of great banter and 'out' psych-ing with Team SAGA followed by a conversation with Jerry on Sunday evening where she fessed up to have never won a race at a major champs. Race 6, job done, a bullet, for me, perhaps the best result of the regatta. :D

You'll all be getting the opportunity to vote for the venue for the worlds 2013, Plerin...not perfect of course, but for me at least, a hard act to follow!
