A fantastic event over Easter for the France Open Skiff at Lac du Der, Champagne. This was the opening event in the new RS500 and RS800 Eurocup Series 2017.

The event was a great success for the RSs. Of the 52 entries, 31 (60%) were RS boats, including 16 RS800s, 9 RS500s, and 6 RS300, RS600 & RS700s.

Andy & Allyson Jeffries (RS800) won the whole event - well done guys! There were 4 RS boats in the top 6!
