It was an intense Deauville International Week ! Wind, chop, currents, sun and rain too… with 10, difficult, yet superb races.
Nicolas Bérenger (Kone Monospace) and his crew, carried away the regatta, at the end of a very tight fight, notably with the Swiss, led by their "amateur" skipper, Eckhard Kaller on Brokerline 3, who finished 2nd.
Nicolas Bérenger finds himself at the top of European Longtze Premier circuit in front of Luc Gellusseau (Lufthansa).
Technique, tactics, and offshore atmosphere have not been missing during this 8th edition of the Grand Prix de l'Ecole Navale.
The 10 Longtze Premier teams have put together several days of closely fought regattas. Spectacular images for spectators, intense racing for the crews....
