Groupama and Hydros to fight for the Cup

        Mylor Harbour, UK [26 September 2013] – The 2013 International C-Class Catamaran Championship has been characterized by the near-absolute dominance of Franck Cammas and Louis Viat and their brilliant Groupama C design.  Until yesterday, the legendary French offshore sailor had only been beaten in one race, and then only because crew Louis Viat snapped a trapeze wire and flew off the boat.  That would change yesterday in the final race of the qualifying round, and not from the second or third place Hydros...
