2000 470 Masters' Cup Microsite

78 470 Crews from 20 nations met in Saint Pierre de Quiberon/France for the Regatta Mix of Masters and Andre Cornu Challenge.

Well organized races, splendid wind- and water- conditions and friendly club-staff guarantees a good plattform for fun everytime.

It was very interesting, to see how olympic cracks and 68 years old Grandmasters harmonizing together on and out of the water.

This year, for the first time Aprentice Masters sailed for their own Cup. After eleven races, we had three winners:

Foerster/Merrick (USA)

Isler/Glaser (USA) for the Masters Cup

Maurel/Combillet (FRA) for the Grandmasters Cup, summarry of age 113 years.

The oldest couple on the water was Speer/Speer (GBR)with a summary of age from 128 years. The youngest came from the Netherlands, Stavenuiter/Stavenuiter (summary 33 years).

This Regatta shows, that the 470 class works over a wide range of age and different levels of sailing performance!

Thanks to the organizers, the clubmanagement and the friendly french spectators!
