Annulation de la C Class Cup

 

CĠest ˆ regrets que lĠŽquipe de Challenge France, challenger franais pour le prochain International C Class Catamaran Championship (ICCCC), se trouve aujourdĠhui dans lĠobligation dĠannoncer lĠannulation de la C Class Cup 2013, faute dĠavoir pu rŽunir un nombre dĠŽquipes suffisant. La C Class Cup devait se dŽrouler ˆ la fin du mois de Mai en Baie de Quiberon en partenariat avec lĠEcole Nationale de Voile et des Sports Nautiques (ENVSN) et tre le premier ŽvŽnement franais rŽunissant les catamarans de Class C.

Nous Žtudierons lĠopportunitŽ de reprogrammer cette rŽgate, ds que la flotte europŽenne de Class C sera plus ŽtoffŽe.

Nous tenons ˆ remercier les partenaires qui se sont engagŽs aux cotŽs de lĠorganisation: La FŽdŽration Franaise de Voile, lĠENVSN, Le Conseil GŽnŽral du Morbihan, lĠagence Mer et MŽdia, et lĠensemble des bŽnŽvoles qui ont contribuŽ.

LĠŽvŽnement majeur de la Class C pour lĠannŽe 2013 reste le championnat international de Catamaran Class C (ICCCC) qui se dŽroulera ˆ Falmouth, UK, du 22 au 28 Septembre 2013.

Les entrainements pour Challenge France vont reprendre au mois dĠAvril sur Patient Lady VI aprs un chantier dĠhiver. LĠŽquipe est impatiente de rŽgater, ˆ Falmouth lors de  lĠInternational C Class Catamaran Championship.

C Class Cup cancelled

 

It is with great regret that Challenge France, French challenger for the next International C Class Catamaran Championship (ICCCC), is obliged to announce the cancellation of the C Class Cup 2013, due to a lack of entries. The C Class Cup was due to be held at the end of May in the beautiful Bay of Quiberon in partnership with the French National Sailing Centre (Ecole Nationale de Voile et des Sports Nautiques – ENVSN) and was intended to be the first ever French C Class Catamaran event.

The organization will be studying all the opportunities to reschedule the regatta as soon as the C Class increases its membership in Europe. Furthermore, during the implementation of the C Class Cup we received a lot of support and expressions of interest from potential sponsors, partners and institutions demonstrating then the full viability of the concept.

We would like to thank all our partners that have backed us since the inception of the project and particularly, the ENVSN, The French Sailing Federation (FFV), The Conseil GŽnŽral du Morbihan and the Mer et MŽdia communication agency as well as all the volunteers.

The next big event for the C Class remains the  International C-Class Catamaran Championship (ICCCC) that will  be held in Falmouth – England from the 21st to 28th of September 2013.

Training sessions for Challenge France will restart in the coming weeks after the winter refit for Patient Lady VI. The whole team is keen to compete in the next ICCCC and is looking forward to the first regattas in Falmouth in September.
