The Hyères event completes the shortened 2017 World Cup Series which finishes with the Finals in Santander from 4 June.

Thirty-three British teams have entered the Hyeres event, where racing will start Tuesday, 25 April and finish with the Medal races over the weekend of 29/30 April.

The medal races will be the normal Olympic format, the trials with various formats that took place in the Palma event are not continued in the World Cup Series.

Britain collected only one gold at the last Olympic classes event, the Trofeo Princesa Sofia IBEROSTAR in Palma, that of James Peters and Fynn Sterritt in the 49er.

Other Palma podium places were: Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell (49er bronze), Elliot Hansen (Laser silver), Nick Thompson (Laser bronze) and John Gimson and Anna Burnet (Nacra17 silver). All will be racing in Hyeres.

This regatta is showing another step up in quality with particularly strong fields in the Finn, Laser and Radial events.
