F16 Europeans 2018 @Helecat: Le Chapelier-Folley 1st












Good material taken oveer the week by Carmen Wenz, when no Pro photographer available this kind of material is just perfect, and Carmen has shot some great takes too. Complete gallery for Day 5 at Dutch F16 Class fb

The F16 Class Europeans 2018 held at Hellecat (NED) was a success, just looking at the podium we can see the diversity of crews racing together: Father & Son, two grown ups top sailors and a mixed youth crew. Add to that scenario you can race solo as can be seen in shots above by Carmen Wenz, and the F16 is the place to gather all levels & ages in the same regatta.

Hope the youths starting to race Nacra 15 can join the F16, a great training ground for them and an excellent step to F18 and Olympic racing.

Emmanuel Le Chapelier & Theo Folley (Bimare / 1D) won the 2018 Europeans over Thomas & Eric Proust (Viper / 1D) , third palce for Armand Clabon & Lou Berthomieu (Viper / Goodall).
4th place for Andreas Lutz & Karl Scheidegger (Falcon / Glaser) and 5th for Lucas Claeyssens & Anne Vandenberghe (Falcon)
