Régates Royales de Cannes - Day 3

Typical early autumn conditions on the Cote d’Azur, for the third day of the Régates Royales de Cannes – Trophée Panerai.P-Class, P13 Chips, P14 Olympian -

The day started with a cloudy sky and then, as hours went by, the sun came out and a light southerly built, before dying down again in the late afternoon.

In the Big Boat - Noir, the 15 Metre Mariska of Benjamin Redeau won yet another duel with her bigger brother, Chris barkham's Cambria. With Elena of London, Stephen McLaren taking third.

In the other classes, the light wind conditions favoured those who managed to sail and manoeuvre well like Angelo Mazarella’s Carron II or Brendan Mc Carty's Rowdy, that jumped on the top of the provisional scoreboard.
