Also on the podium were Mimi El-Khazindar and Ben Batten (GBR) with Gillies Munro/Daniel Harris (GBR) in third. Carla and Marta Munte were the top ranking female team. 56 skiffs came from all over Europ including a team from Russia. Good conditions on Friday and Saturday with westerly winds allowed the Race Committee to hold 4 races per day. On Sunday, after a long wait onshore, the sailors were sent out at 2:30 only to have the first race cancelled due to a change in the wind direction. A final race was held with a shortened course with the French team of Brice Yreix/Loic Fischer-Gillou winning the final race. Full results can be found here:
