83 teams from France, Great Britain, Spain and Switzerland descended on Bordeaux for the annual Grand Prix de l'Armistice hosted by Cercle de la Voile de Bordeaux.
Light winds took over the race track, with just 4 races contested. Close and tactical racing on the lake as the shifty breeze tested teams.
Four races down and overall victory to Enzo Balanger/Gaultier Tallieu (FRA), the bronze medalist at the U17 420 Worlds. Girls teams came to the front, with second and third claimed by Juliette Dubreuil/Alice Cousin (FRA) and Jessie Kampman/Léa Sibertin respectively.
Impressive racing from the girls, with 7 teams featuring in the top ten.
