In the 12´6 Long Distance Class Yoann Cornelis finished 2nd and again Olivia Piana battling with local Olympic champion in windsurfing and triathlon enthusiast Faustine Merret.
On Sunday the race commitee chose a spot with 1.5m waves. A lot of riders hesitated to go in the water with a race board. I knew the spot quite well because I worked there in July, so I knew that the waves were pretty soft. I pushed the girls to go on the water and we were nine on the start line! It was a hard battle once again with Caroline Angibaud, SUP Wave French Champ. I took a good wave on the last round and it brought me to my first title of Beach Race French Champion! I'm super happy!. This is the result for this season. All the girls finished the race and were super happy to do it. Even my friends from Mediterranean and they had never gone in such conditions!
Didier Leneil was awesome this weekend, winning the Beach Race in front all the best French Paddler. Big thumbs up old man!
Many thanks to Fanatic. I'm super happy to spend a lot of time on the water and to share great moments with an awesome team :)"
