Excellent event organized by Cercle Voile Bordeaux. Although some races were held in tricly 4-5knots, it was a good challenge for the foilers to see again how they perform in the lowest wind possible to start a race.
As reported in the week, Glenn just owns this Class, he sailed a Dna to the victory with new developed stepped foils by Mischa Heemskerk plus Exploder rudders.
Glenn Ashby won the European Championhips 2014 @Cercle Voile Bordeaux, Jason Waterhouse 2nd and Steve Brewin 3rd.
Sandro Caviezel ends 4th , grabbing the European Crown.

Three Races were held today in mixed conditions. First race was 4-5knots, top rider and light wind specialist Matthias Dietz won took a bullet from Ashby, who proceed later to standard labor day winning the last two.
The second and third race had good trapeze conditions upwind and pressure for the downwind legs with some going for foiling in the Silver too.
No racing scheduled for today. Few people sailing and the Arg team went for a free sailing session. Thanks to Michel and Cercle Voile Bordeaux for the tender boat.
