All images Eric Bellande / French F18 Assoc , Great photos for this event: Day 2 here, Day 3Album at AFF18 fb-- 4th Day pics AFF18 .--
Nothing changed that much on the overall the final day as only 1 more course was completed. (So I will leave same great pics by Eric from yesterday, reposting that 'superbe' photo from the winners).
Position were the same but Nevertheless the fight for the title was pretty tight with a 1pt gap for each of the 3 top spots of the podium previous the 9th and final race of the event.
Experience counted in the end and Frederic Duthill & Jean Chritophe Mourniac won the 2015 French Nats ending the 9th R in 2nd place, followed by Tim Mourniac-Pierre Yves Durand , and Riwan Perron & Solune Robert keeping things frozen in the overall even for Manu Bouogne & David Fanouillere.
Great Championship finish at Cercle Nautique Loctudy.
