Grand Prix de l´Ecole Navale, from May 29th till June 1st 2014

The National French Navy and the Naval Academy, which both have a long tradition related to the world of sailing, have been organizing the Grand Prix de l´Ecole Navale for over 10 years. Every year in May, this regatta brings together the biggest fleet of monotype boats on Crozon waters and in the bay of Brest.

As a major sailing event, it became in 2009 part of the French Monotype Championship. With over 190 registered boats and 900 crew members, the organizers have already met the challenge. The M34 fleet is racing alongside 11 other monotype boats such as J80, Open 5.70, Longtze and Seascape 18.

As partner of the Grand Prix de l´Ecole Navale, Marinepool will be represented ashore in the race village and on the exhibition space of the French Sailing Federation. The M34 crews of Courrier Dunkerque and Oman Sail will be wearing the Marinepool flag at sea.
