Excerpt report from Cardiff sent by Extreme Sailing Series Media:
--------------------------
'' ....Despite their string of struggles with logistics and boat damage this weekend, it was French foiling superstars, Antoine Rucard and Solune Robert from Team France Jeune, who were crowned overall champions of the Flying Phantom Series.

"It all began with a little problem with Solune's passport," said crew Antoine Rucard, speaking of the issues they'd had. "He only arrived a couple of hours before the first race! Then we had a rather amazing capsize that broke the mast, before damaging our foil case on the following day. In the end, we made it onto the Cardiff podium which meant we won the Series. A hard event, but worth it."
