League Cup – Martigues 

Sunday 26th September. The weather did not want to play ball at the weekend of this southern France league cup regatta (Coupe de la Ligue Sud), forcing 161 contestants to deal with capricious conditions at the Berre lagoon. Twelve young sailors from the Sports Section made the trip to compete in four classes.  

In the youngest group, Matteo Asscher finished at the foot of the podium with a hard-fought 4th place against a 69-strong fleet of Optimists. Alexandre Pompée was 26th and Ludovica Bonelli 39th

After many years shining in the Optimist class, Noah Garcia has embraced his role of outsider with brio to pull off 6th place in the ILCA 4 ranking, an excellent performance for his first regatta on Lasers. In the same category, Mathis Duplomb won the event and continues to improve. 

In ILCA 6, Bodhi van Der Linden finished 4th ahead of Leo Boisvert in 6th. In the Nacra 15, the Luca Frederiksen/François Lamy pairing raised the YCM’s colours high with a superb 2nd place. Julian Choquenet and Louise De Beaumont came 7th, ahead of Namu van Der Linden and Ariadni Verevis in 10th
