The team of Michael Quirk (AUS) and Tim Needham (GBR) have won the 2019 505 Euro Cup Cannes, the first leg of the Euro Cup series.
Like so much sailing in Europe this weekend the final day of Euro Cup Cannes was cancelled, not due to a lack of wind but due to too much breeze!
The participants enjoyed some really tight competition throughout the regatta. “Fantastic sailing. The racing was so close the entire time,” said competitor and former World Champion Ian Pinnell.
