• Hamlin Nelson In Second At Cannes

    31 Boats took to the water today in Cannes for the Europa Cup 5o5 Series representing primarily European
    countries, heavy on the German, Great Britain and France with a dash of Swiss, Belgium's and Italians and
    One Australian Team and one from the USA... And after day one, The Aussie's and Muricans( Howie Hamlin and Jeff Nelson)
    followed by Brits Ian Pinnell and Clarke Russ sit atop the leaderboard....





    CANNES, France – The team of Michael Quirk and Tim Needham currently sit atop the leaderboard
    as day one of the 2019 505 Euro Cup kick off at Yacht Club de Cannes. After a postponement to allow
    the gusty 20-30 knot wind to moderate, Olivier de Turckhein, PRO from the Yacht Club de Cannes did
    well to get three races in the shifty, off shore and decaying breeze. Places changed regularly and racing
    was extremely close.

    In what has become one of the highlights on the annual 505 calendar, the Euro Cup is a four-event series
    that takes place across France, Italy, Germany and the UK. There is a winner determined at each event as
    well as an overall series winner based on cumulative scores from three of the four regattas.












    Cannes is the first stop on the 2019 circuit and has already proven to be great place to kick off the series.
