An official note from the organizers of the event announced that the French team, which accumulated 1,000 points and three catches, was followed by Wet Dream of the United States and by Havana of Spain.

With this result, the French squad has won the competition on three occasions, which, according to the event’s set of rules, allowed them to engrave their names on the tournament cup.

Another French competitor, Francois Gerard April, won the award for the first catch while Team 18, with the English boat Marlin XI, won the award for the biggest catch (17.65 kg).
