France Open Skiff at Lac du Der is the classic season's opener of the french Breizhskiff circuit.

This 3 day regatta is always held over the Easter weekend, including the Monday, so easy to book your holidays until 2015 28 participants battled it out during the 2006 edition and prospects are good to break the 50 boat hurdle in 2007.

What to expect ?

An enormous lake situated 80 km south of Reims in the Champagne region (that should ring a bell in terms of rehydratation after racing ...) with exclusive use for sailors of a beautiful sports centre (referred to as UFOLEP) providing cheap and convenient beds and a cafetaria to enjoy meals and a drink in the evening as a group.
600 hectares of this lake are reserved for boating, the rest is a natural reserve
The UFOLEP base is situated at the south side of the lake, next to a bungalowparc with swimmingpool and plenty of other things to keep the family happy (see separate section).
Easy launching, space for campers.
A relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere where cameraderie prevails over protests (at least until the first start signal ...)
