Eurocat 2007
Carnac, France

Over 300 multihulls from eight nations gathered in Carnac, France for the latest edition of the Eurocat. Whilst light winds predominated, the finial day brought good racing conditions with 9-10 knots across the courses.
Lights winds had hampered and delayed racing earlier in the regatta. During the long distance Grand Raid race on day three the wind dropped dramatically during the race, forcing the race committee to shorten the course, with the bullet eventually going to Wouter SAMAMA and Andre NIESTEN (NED) ahead of home favourites Billy BESSON and Arnaud JARLEGAN (FRA).

In the Formula 18 yellow fleet, Mischa HEEMSTERK and Bastiaan TENTIJ (NED) brought to an end Darren BUNDOCK and Glenn ASHBY's (AUS) run of three consecutive Eurocat wins. Victory in the pink fleet for the C1, C3-SL16 and Spitfires went to Jeremy LAGARRIGUE and Guillaume SANGIARDI (FRA), whilst the blue fleet for the Dart 18, Hobie 16s and SLKL 15s was won by Valentine PASSET and Justine FALLET (FRA).

Crews from Australia, Belgium, France, England, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands and Tahiti all competed in the regatta. Following on from the prizegiving, Michel GILLET gave a gift to the director of the Yacht Club Carnac, François PEDRO, to celebrate its 20th Eurocat.
