- 1 Olympic Games: money makes happiness
- 2 Tour du Finistère: good humor and a double
- 3 Puru Challenge Race: the last before the Mini-Transat
- 4 Pro Sailing Tour: heading for Brest!
On the water of Enoshima, Saturday, the French shone. For the last RS: X Olympic Games, Charline Picon (36 years old) and Thomas Goyard (29 years old) finished on the second step of the podium. Twenty-four hours after their performances, they returned to these medals. The defending champion offered herself a second silver medal that one, after winning the Medal Race. For his first Olympic Games, Thomas Goyard also won the silver medal. Disqualified from the Medal Race, the Caledonian was hot but both are happy with their performance.
The Tour du Finistère is back in service. If after five stages between Morlaix and Port-la-Forêt, it is the crew of “Delta Voiles Bretagne” who wins and does it again after 2019, good humor still reigns on the pontoons. Among the 72 crews, three former competitors of the 2019 Mini-Transat had decided to finally sail together:
Christophe Brière de la Hosseraye, the Belgian Marie-Amélie Lenaerts and Olivier Le Fichous were delighted to combine their solo skills to tour the Finistère tip.
On Wednesday at Port Bourgenay, 72 Mini took the start of the Puru Challenge Race, the last race before the Mini-Transat. The first stage up to Gexto was won by Pierre Le Roy in Proto and Alberto Riva in Series. Tuesday, the Minis will take to the sea for the 300 miles back to Vendée.
Last round for the Ocean Fifty on their new circuit, the Pro Sailing Tour. After three stages in Brest, La Rochelle and the Canaries where Sam Goodchild and his crew dominated the debates, it’s time for the last stage between Toulon and Brest. They were to leave Sunday at the end of the day but a gale forced the organizers to postpone the start to Monday morning. There will be six at the start of this coefficient 3 race which can still turn everything upside down. The first are expected at the earliest seven days later.
