470 Spring Cup
Marseilles, France

Hosted by ASPTT Marseille, France, the XXXVth International 470 Spring Cup has attracted many of the world's best 470 sailors a week before the start of the fourth event on the ISAF Sailing World Cup calendar in Hyeres.
With 60 entries, spanning 23 nations and 5 continents, the event has again proved itself as being a firm favourite on the 470 Calendar. Taking place from 13-18 April 2010, the sailors are racing as a mixed fleet with men and women on the same race course, together with the 420 fleet - for a total of 101 boats across the 470 and 420 fleets.

The opening two races were sailed in good wind conditions, with wind from the west, ranging between 8 and 13 knots with sunshine and excellent sea conditions. After light and shifty winds delayed racing, the Race Committee got the day's competition underway at 15:30 hours local time.

The first race was won by the Japanese team of Haradoa Ryunosuke and Yoshida Yogu, followed by Lucas Calabrese and Juan de la Fuente (ARG), with Paul Snow-Hansen and Jason Saunders (NZL) rounding out the top three. The top placed women's team was Ingrid Petitjean and Nadege Douroux (FRA) sailing on their home waters of Marseille.

Race two was a French domination at the top with the team of Pierre Leboucher and Vincent Garos (FRA) taking the gun, with young stars Sofia Bouvet and Jeremie Mion (FRA) in hot pursuit, leaving Lucas Calabrese and Juan de la Fuente (ARG) in third. Racing continues until Sunday 18 April.
