J-Gabriel Charton and Olivier Terrol

2016 Dr. Evil


Report by Jean-Francoois Puissegur:

The Dr Evil regatta is traditionally the warm up of the Nice Christmas regatta. A start early in the morning at 8:45 am in order to benefit from the 10-12 knots thermic wind coming from the Alps mountains. 7 boats took part of this training regatta, but only four boats managed to wake up for the first start! Too late on the greed, Michael Willis and Antonio Rubino followed the first race from the finishing line. Charton and Terrol took the lead from the start at the pin end until the finish but a huge battle between Puissegur, Dot and Enjalbert on the last downwind saw Dot passing 2 boats to score a good 2nd place.

In the 2nd race, Puissegur took a very good start at the pin and managed to play with the very shifty wind to secure his win before the wind died. Charton went back from nowhere to finish second passing Dot on the finish line.

Unfortunately Willis ,Rubino and Zilioli did not manage to finish this race on time, a bad day for each of them but nobody was late to enjoy the sponsor's lunch offered by Graham Bailey.
