You need to watch the 8th and 9th TracTrac replays, some really close competition today they had 3 races and good winds. The spanish team of Javier Padrón and Miguel Pérez could not hold the lead but nevertheless an incredible performance for them, and as mentioned yesterday, we hope to have them at LA 2012, great achievement for the level of the Spanish F18 Armada.
Olivier Backes and Arnaud Jarlegan had an excellent day with 3,2,1 for to grab the  European Title.
Francoise Morvan and Matthiew Vandame were 2nd. Full results here although 10th race is missing right now

Also a nice performance for our Arg fleet friends, Pierre LeClainche and Antoine Joubert , they were 7th until of 85, both 25 , for sure the future of the French multihull scene.

Time for an interview with Arnaud Jarlegan, currently the best main sail trimmer on earth? the 2010 Worlds, plus the AC45 performance with Energy and this Euro F18 Cup, put him on the spot.
