Tiwal Cup 2017

What a day!

The 26th of May, 53 sailboats and 85 sailors made the trip to gather for an epic 4th Tiwal Cup in the Gulf of Morbihan.
We were very happy to welcome Tiwal Captains from the USA, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Malta, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and from all over France, to share the fun of sailing.

Wide range of sailing conditions

After a quiet morning with almost no wind and a chilled out lunch on Arz Island, the wind then picked up and held at 20 knots on the sail back to Arradon. The end of the journey was pretty demanding with only about 30 boats who made it to the end.

The program was: Tiwal Assembly Contest, Sailing, BBQ on Arz Island, Tiwal Kid’s Cup, more sailing and the Prize-giving Ceremony.


Solo Assembly contest: Gilles BAJOLET (10mins 41secs – new world record)
Duo assembly contest: Mélanie VIAL et Grégory PRELAT (6mins 28secs – new world record)
Solo regatta: Jérôme VICI Duo regatta : Michel et Alix Luong
Kid’s Cup: Salomé and Marine
