International C-Class Catamaran Championship event in Falmouth, The French Groupama team take the ICCCC trophy

From the following article on the International C-Class Catamaran Championship website:

Mylor Harbour, UK [30 September 2013] –

With their carbon wings and slender hulls packed into boxes en route to a half-dozen different nations, it’s time to reflect on the 2013 International C-Class Catamaran Championship.

When Cogito emerged on the Little Cup scene back in 1996, her innovative edge-twisting wing proved a massive edge for Steve Clark and Duncan MacLane. Nearly 20 years later, Franck Cammas’ Groupama C showed a similarly game-changing innovation, her stable, simple foiling system helping to propel her to an easy 2-0 victory against Jeremy Lagarrigue’s Hydros. Cammas and crew Louis Viat would become first Frenchmen to ever hoist the International C-Class Catamaran Championship trophy.
