31st Pinatel Trophy


Sailed at Paris, France.

Competition from this celebration, sailed eight days before the Centenary at St. Tropez, was masterfully organized by the President of the series, Romain Andrieux. This 31st Pinatel Trophy, the third and final round of the Championship of France of the Star 2011, had a modest participation but of great strength.

Three foreign teams, two German and one Finnish, responded to our invitation and joined the seven crews of our Cercle and YCIF to participate in 3 days to 15 races valiantly launched relentlessly by our loyal chairman of the race, Hervé Le Marchand, brilliantly assisted by Maria Theresa Jourda.

Racing was under a full south wind in very light whimsical or confusing gusts, and started with summer temperature, The event ended in a deluge of rain for the final 15th race that would tie a very tight podium from the first day of racing.

After some clarification by the jury , chaired by Francis Laleu (a ghost - former winner of the Trophy Pinatel in the last century), Guillaume Rolland of YCIF, sailing with Laurent Le Deuff, who fought his was through the air turbulence from the Seine to win this 31st Pinatel Trophy, followed by 1 point with CVP's Godest Hervé and Jean-Louis Mémoret, the winners last year. The German Pinatel faithful crew, Uwe Hanemann of the Essen fleet sailing with with Anette Dahms, completed the podium.

After the friendly awards chaired by Christian Desouches, crews were given appointments for the 32th Pinatel Trophy. Also welcomed the presence at the awards of Pierre Mathé former captain of the Star Fleet Circle Award and creator of Pinatel.
