Obelix Trophy - Benodet

(Trafalgar) Battle No 2 took place last week with 6 British boats v 9 French Boats in a mixture of racing conditions in Benodet.   This is a really good regatta to attend with the efficient launching facilities all included in the race entry fee and everything readily available. Espada helmed by Peter Morton and crewed by the girls (Louise, Liz, Libby, Lucy and Nicky) won with Bullet 2nd (Mike, Howard, Dougal, John and Charlotte) and Runaway Bus (Paul, Peter, Vicky, Nigel & David) 4th.   Third place was  'l'homme angleterre honoraire', Laurent Beaurin in 45 deg South on account of his participation in racing the season on the British side of the channel for the past 3 years!  Ayanami threw a drinks party in a fabulous house they rented just up from the Yacht Club which started the regatta off well, and Guy Pronier head of the French QT class organised a lovely dinner on the Friday night attended by 10 crews and the President of the Yacht Club de l'Odet.  Full results can be found on www.yco-voile.com.  Some photographs have been uploaded into the photo gallery.  If anyone has any others they would like to include, please send through to: This email address is being protected from spambots.
