Défi Voile Etudiant – Pornichet

 

A steady 20-25 knots blessed the 25th Défi Voile Etudiant (sailing regatta for students) in Pornichet, Brittany. A total of 18 teams on J/80s made the trip including one from the engineering college in Nantes led by Nicolas Bouchet from the Yacht Club de Monaco.

 

 

Throughout the races he maintained his leading position before finally conceding victory to the Western Brittany University team in the sixth and final race of the event. It was a promising result for the YCM helmsman: “I felt like I really improved my racing techniques over these two days and loved being at the helm especially on the downwind legs.” Nicolas Bouchet will be aboard the J/70 Ponant at this weekend’s 34th Primo Cup – Trophée Credit Suisse which starts Friday 9th.
