Feydit & Rhimbault win the 2010 French Nationals at Brest
It looks as though big winds and seas tested the 208 sailors, including pretty large teams from Australia, Britain and Spain, as well as several from Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy and Poland at the French Coupe Nationale. Unfortunately, those supporters looking for a summer break may have needed their wet weather gear too!
Hugo Feydit & Pierre Rhimbault are the new National 420 Champions of France, with Corentin Bornet & Charlie Ageneau (in 2nd and Etienne L’Her & Hugo Lauras 3rd. Ewa Bartosiewicz & Katarzyna Pstrowska of Poland were first women, and the Scheiwillers, Clara & Lucie, French Women’s Champions.
