On the first day of the Groupama Garancia F18 Catamaran World Championship Franck Cammas visited the Füred Holiday Camp.

At the beginning of the world championship busy competitors and their folded catamarans thronged the beach, waiting for the obligatory measuring, and most importantly the following sailing.

Franck Cammas the famous sailor arrived to that stirring atmosphere on Friday, and he gladly met some of his former contestant. The organizers ensured that the holder of multiple records could try the Hungarian water. Until Yann Ménétrier, the head of the Groupama Garancia tried the catamaran sailing, till then Cammas followed them by motorboat. Maybe it’s not an accident that the Hungarian sailors sharpened the turn so much that the principal’s adventure ended in the water. Cammas, knowing well that situation said funnily appreciating the “Hungarian see” : “It’s so good that the water is not salty, so it’s not burn the eyes !”

The schedule of the Groupama Garancia F18 World Championship is proceeding according to plans, and the participants waiting for the start in a very good mood.
