Champions dominant in Hyères day of building pressure

The wind might have dropped on day 2 of the 53rd Semaine Olympique Française de Hyères - TPM, but the pressure kept rising for the sailors either getting to know their new crews or crafts. You can feel it in the boat parks here in Hyères, with an Olympic cycle of just three years before the Paris 2024 Olympic sailing event takes place in Marseilles, a fine morning’s sail west along the coast. On a day that started light and built steadily from shifty 6s in the late morning to steady 17-19-knot south-westerlies by the late afternoon, the classes that set off in the morning were tested in a range of conditions.

A flying return for the Semaine Olympique Française

The 53rd Semaine Olympique Française de Hyères - TPM opened in classic Côte d’Azur style on Monday with the world’s best rising to the strong winds through a field of 751 sailors from over 50 countries. It was like they had never been away. After missing two years because of Covid, it was the most welcome and vivacious of returns for a venue and event that means so much to so many. Racing began at 11 in glorious sunshine, under cloudless skies and with strong offshore westerly winds of 15-20 knots. A choppy sea state, more so on the more the easterly courses with less protection from the bay and Îles d’Or, as well as wind gusts between 25-30, kept everyone on their toes. Both the world and sailing have changed since the last Semaine Olympique Française de Hyères in 2019. The 10 classes that will be contested in Marseille for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games were in Hyères - which is just 50 miles west down the coast - for the first time. And it was flight time for the five foiling classes on show.
