French 505 National Championship at Ecole National de Voile, Quiberon

by Mike Holt 17 Jul 2018 15:02 BST 13-15 July 2018

Over the French holiday weekend for Bastille Day and coinciding with the World Cup final, 40 boats contested the 2018 French National 505 Championship at the Ecole National de Voile in the picturesque Quiberon Peninsula. The French teams were joined by four British boats as well as American, Australian, Belgium and Swiss boats.

The light conditions meant that only 4 races were sailed over the three days. Ian Pinnell and Alex Davies (GBR9190) scored a convincing 1,1,6,1 to take the title from an in-form Philippe Boite and Mathieu Fountaine (FRA9175), With Michael Quirk and Reeve Dunne in third, proving that Australian has its eyes on the Gdynia Worlds.

Andy Smith is back from injury, taking 6th with Tim Needham, back in form ready for Poland, and Tim Bird once again proved his light-airs credentials, taking 11th in the 40-boat fleet with Adam Kenney (GBR 8914). Tom Darling and Elliot Wells (GBR8970) were 13th, proving strength in depth for the British fleet.

As would be expected, the French hospitality was fantastic, and despite the lack of wind a good time was had by all. The class now heads to Gdynia in Poland for the 2018 World Championship where more than 130 boats are entered.
