LITTLECUP 2015 : a resounding victory for Franck Cammas
After a week of sailing, often struggling with capricious weather conditions on Lake Geneva, Franck Cammas and Louis Viat of Groupama claimed top position on the podium of the C-Class LITTLECUP. Cammas’ magnificent performance, as one of the most talented sailors of his generation, has been heralded by amateurs and professionals alike. Groupama’s victory is a victory for technological advancement and for team spirit, as the ‘Little Cup’ proves it is now grand in stature.
In parallel with the final race, a playoff was also held between the Swiss team Norgador and the German team Sentient Blue, with the Swiss claiming victory.
Throughout the week of racing, the Hydros sailors performed exceptionally, demonstrating terrific speed when foiling (at times reaching three times wind-speed).
Patrick Odier, Managing Partner of Lombard Odier Group, awarded the trophy to Franck Cammas and Louis Viat, adding:
“Our Firm shares the values of high performance, overcoming challenges and developing talent with the Hydros team. We salute the drive, competitive spirit and sportsmanship that these sailors have demonstrated with their boats, which have themselves fully lived up to expectations.”
