In this very special year, when very few sailing events were able to take place, the Cercle de la Voile d'Angers (CVA) was nevertheless able to organize the National Soling 2020 on the Maine river. Eleven crews took part in this event, under the sun but with little wind.
This small river (the smallest in France!) has hosted CVA sailboats since 1898 and Solings for fifty years. Its configuration makes it a terrain full of traps and surprises, making navigation extremely technical. It calls for constant observation and adaptation, tests patience and ultimately rewards talent.
In this little game, it was quite naturally two Angevin crews who ranked first (Jaques Montécot - Gabriel Montécot - Fabrice Meier followed by François-Xavier Denis - Jean-Yves Manach - Vincent Manach); the podium was completed by a crew from the bay of Pornichet-La Baule and Saumur (Edouard Champault - Marc Furic - Louis-Etienne Du Reau).
On land, thanks to a perfectly well-run organization and a team as smiling as it is efficient, the crews were able to meet in a relaxed and warm atmosphere, enhanced by the renovated facilities of the club.
