Palma World Cup Day 3: The French are Coming


Photo: Jesus Renedo / SofiaMapfre
Not much surprises after 6 races. After the Dutch fleet yesterday, today was French Armada's turn. Billy Besson-Marie Rou won the 2 first races and Moana Vaireux-Manon Audinet the 3rd. Both teams stand 3rd and 2nd respectively.
In the lead Rene Groeneveld-Charlie Begemann with 3,2,4 for the day.


Billy Besson is having an excellent performance streak, after almost gabbing the F18 Worlds at LA on a chartered Inf, now grabbing 3 bullets here and also preparing his C-Class challenge with jeremy Lagarrigue & the Hydros team. Moana and Manon been sailing together for a while now, like Audrey Ogerau & Matthiew Vandame currently 16th.


GBR teams unknown to me, doing quite well, for sure with lots of support from the RYA, that is one the most active sailing Assoc. The Austrian flyers lost some places but still in good position, and Bissaro-Sicouri with consistent top ten results to score a 9th overall.
Iker having a hard debut, and  Carranza-Blando not being consistent enough to progress in the table with two 13th and a 28th.
