Honoring Olympic & Multihull Sailor Charles Favre

Charles Favre sadly passed away last Thursday while sailing an A-Cat. I saw condolences for from several sailors, and realized he was a beloved friend by his peers, and he got plenty, just analyzing the boats he sailed : Olympic 470 & Tornado, X40s, D35s and A-Class among others.

I didn´t knew him as I know other sailors in Europe, but I do remember him from the 2014 Bordeaux A-Class Europeans, Why? Because he was always smiling and was the most cordial sailor to us newbies/rookies of the Arg team.

Report by Bob Griffits: "Although winter will soon descend in the lands down under, the Australian A Class fleet has no intention in sitting out the cooler weather in some form of hibernation. Many sailors are very keen to master their foiling techniques, and many have been quietly modifying their boats to incorporate any of the increasing repertoire of hydrofoils that are now available.
