The final skipper is yet to be revealed, as the 12th slot will go to the winner of the ISAF Grade 3 Marseille Y's Cup, another international match racing regatta organised on the 10-11 March 2007 by the YCPR. The Y's Cup also promises to be an exciting event, with several highly ranked skippers taking part.
Match Racing Fortnight
Indeed, these two competitions constitute a 'Marseilles Match Racing Fortnight'. All the more so as the French Match Racing Team will be training in between the two regattas, with the participation of some of the foreign skippers.
The umpires will also be of the very best quality with the Chief Umpire being none other than the Italian Alfredo RICCI, and the Frenchman Gérard BOSSE, deputy Chief Umpire, both of whom are involved in the coming America's Cup.
