Re: Frank Cammas

Speaking of Frank Cammas (again), he and his sailing partner Sophie de Turckheim are currently sitting in 5th position overall, after 9 races, at the Nacra 17 European Championships, on Lake Como. They are 18 points out of 1st and will have a very hard time catching the dominant Austrian pair of Tanja Frank and Thomas Zajac. At the same time, they have a 15 point gap over the 6th place Italians, so I imagine their focus will be on getting into that second or third podium spot.

Consider this is the Olympic mixed multihull class, which means many of the competitors are doing Olympic campaigns (include Cammas, I believe). In this case, Cammas is crewing and calling tactics, while Turckheim is driving. Pretty impressive stuff. From this event they will have the Worlds coming up next month, then the Little Americas Cup. What a life!
We deal in lead, friend.
