HYÈRES, FRANCE (April 24, 2022) – For the first time, all the 2024 Olympic classes have gathered in the host country of the Paris Olympics, competing just down the coast from the official sailing venude from Marseilles. This is the second and final time all classes will meet in 2022 before most splitting into single class events, world championships and trial regattas in The Hague, Netherlands, in view of the combined world championships in 2023.

From the United States Sailing Team:
In addition to the eye-catching exposure to international competition in epic conditions, French Olympic Week 2022 provides another valuable opportunity for athletes who competed in the Trofeo Princesa Sofía in neighboring Spain earlier this month.
“We are grateful to have another event so soon after Palma,” said USST 470 athlete Louisa Nordstrom. “We left the Princess Sofia Regatta with lots of good takeaways. Hyères is a great opportunity to apply lessons learned and try again with the international fleet.
“This regatta represents another stepping stone as we work towards our larger goals for the team,” said USST 49er coach Mark Asquith. “The guys feel refreshed after some time reflecting on the Princess Sofia and are looking forward to continuing our progress. We also have Nevin Snow and Mac Agnese joining the US team for this regatta and the whole team has synchronized with Palma’s ideas and calibrated our approach to Hyères.
