Christophe Gaumont, SOF Event Manager: “For the first time in France, we will be sailing the 10 2024 Olympic classes on the same field of play. It will be a great sporting event, but also a beautiful spectacle. Of the 10 classes, 5 have foils. This will be the first time that we will host the iQFOiL for men and women. The new classes mean the SOF will run with perfect parity.
There is going to be a real sense of occasion, as we are only 3 years away from the Games. The preparation period has been reduced by one year compared to other Olympic cycles. Performing at Hyères, a body of water loved by all the competitors, will allow everyone to see where they are in the world hierarchy. There should be a lot of registrations!”
Organised by the Fédération Française de Voile (French Sailing Federation), with the support of the city of Hyères and the Toulon Provence Méditerranée region, the Semaine Olympique Française is an historic Olympic sailing regatta on an international scale and will be the first French milestone for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, when the sailing events will be staged in Marseille.
