Le Grand Prix de L'Armistice - Maubisson - Event Report


4 Irish sailors travelled to Maubisson in France, over the October break. There were 98 420s racing as well as other classes.

The 420 fleet sailed a total of seven races over the four day event.  Light conditions dominated in beautiful autumn sunshine.  On the first day, racing was abandoned due to lack of wind.  However, making the best of it, the Irish sailors played a soccer match with the French, and even got in a swim.
