F16 Europeans 2014: July 26th-August 1st @Le Touquet

Sent by F16 Press: - Taking on the challenge in France -
"With the F16 worlds, A-cat Europeans and Round Texel just past, the F18 worlds and Nacra 17 Europeans ongoing and the F16 Europeans coming in just over 2 weeks cats seems to be all over the place at the moment. Nice fleets, fun competition, a true boost for catsailing world wide.

To continue the momentum we currently have in catsailing and in the F16 class we are happy to annouce to have Kim-Anne Le formal and Benjamin Amiot will be competing at the F16 Europeans. We are convinced that having a top French team on the boat will boost the interest in the F16 class in France.

France is an important catsailing country, so also for the F16 class. The French F16 fleet has been dominated by

the Viper and Cirrus Q, but over the last 2 years the other F16 designs as Aquaraptor, Bimare, Falcon and Nacra have gained quite some interest strenghtening the formula 16 class in France. Last Eurocat at Carnac being one of the proofs of that. Having Kim-Anne and Ben on the boat will only stimulate this tendency and secure the position of the F16 class in France and the rest of Europe."
