Albert Roturier FRA National Champion, but Spanish sailors show the way
National Class A – October 20 to 23, 2021 – Carcans-Maubuisson. Jacques Valente reports.
As usual, the national event took place on this magnificent site on the waters of the Cercle de la voile de Bordeaux. An exceptional attendance with no less than 48 registered boats – from several countries – France – Spain – Germany – Switzerland and the superb Belgian team who like each animated the fleet on the water and especially on land.
4 days planned but unfortunately only 7 races completed, but in conditions ranging from 5 to 20 knots, the only shadow on the board being the loss of time sometimes or hasty decisions not allowing to do more races by the PRO, sometimes the best is the enemy of the good. The last day was abandoned 3/4 though the first race as the wind disappeared, never to return.
The highlights of the races were, the dominance of Micky Todd in classic and the superb demonstration of Iago .... Who flew over the debates in Open, also note the abandonment of Emmanuel Dodé, then lying in silver place, as a result of event ending material breakage.
Thus Albert Roturier was crowned National Champion.
