Fireball French Nationals & Europeans at La Rochelle Overall

by Tim Saunders 21 Aug 2009 15:15 BST 15-28 August 2009

Vince Horey and Rob Gardner win high scoring championship

With two races to be sailed on the final day but no more discards to come in, it was very tight at the top of the leaderboard. The majority of the top 10 were still able to claim overall victory. Dave Wade and Ben McGrane, out of the running overall, won both the day's races.

The first race of the day was a difficult one for many of the title contenders. Vince Horey & Rob Gardner and Tom Gillard & Francis Rowan both had poor races. Gillard and Rowan could only manage 25th in the last race to leave them 3rd overall.

Martyn Lewis and Richard Bailey strengthened their position with a 3rd but a 21st in the race 8 placed them fourth overall.

Martin Kubovy and Martin Cap were again consistent with 10th and 14th leaving them on 57 points just three behind the winners Horey and Gardner, who were 3rd in the final race. Ludovic Alleaume and Etienne Perdon claiming the French National title in 7th overall.
