Mumm 30 World Championship 2005
Trinite sur Mer, France

It was another perfect sailing day to finish the last two races of the Mumm 30 World Championship.
There was breeze building out of the west from 12-20 knots as another front rolled through and cleared the clouds for some beautiful sailing on the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Morbihan.

The start of Race 10 was on time with no problems, but the black flag was hoisted for Race 11 after a general recall. After the upset caused earlier in the event, the sailors were far more respectful and the start was clear.

Two four-leg windward leeward courses were completed and the new world champions are Pierre-Loic BERTHET and his crew aboard Bouygues Telecom.

Their conservative finishes of 8 and 19 were enough to pass Toulon Provence Mediteranee Coych who were mid fleet today.
