470 Spring Cup in Marseilles
Marseilles, France

The last day of the ISAF Grade 2 event, the 35th International 470 Spring Cup saw the final two of the scheduled eleven races contested in sun, blue sky and with a stable 8-10 knot southwesterly in Marseilles, France.
Putting in a stunning performance was Mat Belcher and 'stand-in' crew Will Ryan (AUS). Apart from an OCS in race three, they raced a great event with mainly top ten finishes to win by three points overall.

The team who remained in the top three throughout the racing, Lucas Calabrese and Juan de la Fuente (ARG) managed to convert their third place to a second on the last day. Their result will mean a lot, ranking amongst one of their better performances in such an elite fleet and particulary as the sailors move onto the next event, the Semaine Olympique Francaise, event four on the ISAF Sailing World Cup series. Rounding out the top three were Pierre Leboucher and Vincent Garos (FRA).

The top placed women's team were Ingrid Petitjean and Nadege Douroux (FRA) in eigth, who sailed a great event, but will have been disappointed by their 35th place in the final race.
