Region Ile de France wipes out

Peponnet retains title

After a weekend of mixed conditions at the K-Challenge Pro-Am Cup in Marseilles

Sunday October 19th 2003, Author: Stephanie Nadin, Location: France
After no racing on Saturday a 15 knots wind returned for the final day of the K-Challenge Pro-Am Cup.

Two more races were sailed in addition to the four on Friday, providing enough results to allow each competitor a discard.

Today, Région Ile de France was leading the 5th race from the outset, but Thierry Peponnet and his crew on K-Challenge 1 took advantage of a wind shift on the second leg to go back to the top of the fleet.

Then, they managed to put a boat between them and Région Ile de France, this was Pierre-Loïc Berthet and the Epure by Lierac boat. Peponnet maintained the advantage until the end of the race. After a poor start John Cutler and Nicolas Charbonnier K-Challenge 2 gradually got back into the frame rising up the fleet from 11th to finish fifth.

In the sixth race, K-Challenge 1 headed to the right hand side of the course to move ahead of second placed Epure by Lierac, while Région Ile de France took this opportunity to put Nantes Saint-Nazaire behind them. On the downwind leg, there was lots of action as the wind pipped up caused a complete change around in the leaderboard.

It was Nantes Saint-Nazaire who managed to recover best, getting in front of Marseille Cap Sport which came back after having hitting another boat. With Marseille Cap Sport and K-Challenge 1 on the left hand side of the sailing area, and Epure by Lierac and Nantes Saint-Nazaire on the right, Marseille Cap Sport took the opportunity to regain the lead in the second upwind leg with the amateur team Entra’cte- Les Copains A Bord just behind.

On the final downwind leg, K-Challenge 1 managed to take the lead back from Epure By Lierac, Les Copains A Bord and Marseille Cap Sport.

At the end of the series Thierry Peponnet has won the K-Challenge Pro-Am Cup for the second year running.
