The 99 Fountain 1st4boats**** crew of James Sheppard and Craig Wilson took a dominant win in today’s Evolution class Sprint race of the Grand Prix de Marseille, heading home the 88 Kiton Outerlimits OSG Racing boat and the 10 Fantastic 1 Cigarette Racing Team in a dramatic event that had thrills and spills aplenty.
The race got off to a controversial start before the boats even reached the first turn as the 99 Fountain boat and the 69 Honeyparty**** had a close shave that left the 69 Honeyparty**** boat limping back to harbour with severe hull damage. In the ensuing confusion, the majority of boats managed to miss the first buoy, allowing the 99 Fountain boat to make a clean escape before building a 20-second lead.
"It was a fantastic race," Sheppard said. "We never pushed the boat to the maximum. We had a difficult situation at the start with three boats who missed a buoy and were forced to turn around. Conditions were incredibly difficult, but we have a superb crew. Mark Wilson, our team manager, planned an awesome boat."
In today’s SuperSport race, the reigning champion 44 Conam Yachts crew continued their dominance. The Italian-based pairing of Angelo Tedeschi and Aaron Ciantar led home the 59 Saho Offshore Rana’s boat and the 08 Phoenix TV team, with a lead of almost three-minutes at the chequered flag.
The battle for second place was initially an incredibly close-fought scrap between the 47 Silverline Buzzi Bullet and 07 VoomVoom**** crews, but both boats ground to a halt midway through the race with technical problems, severely hampering their bid to stay ahead of the 44 Conam Yachts crew at the top of the points table.
"The water conditions were very bad, but we applied our strategy to make a good start," said Ciantar. "This advantage gave us the possibility to manage our position to the middle of the course. The conditions kept changing with the wind, but it was okay for the victory."
Can anyone stop the 99 Fountain Worldwide1st4boats**** team? That's the question being asked after the reigning world champion crew of James Sheppard and Craig Wilson won today's shortened Endurance race of the Grand Prix de Marseille. Their weekend haul of 200 points earned the two Britons the overall Powerboat P1 Grand Prix of the Sea victory on a wet Mediterranean Sunday.
This wasn't the Fountain team's easiest win, as they first had to come from behind and then defend their lead from a variety of challengers. "With such a great team around me, all I have to do is turn up and drive" said an elated James Sheppard.
In the most dramatic moment of the weekend, the 60 GFN Gibellato, 66 Cranefields Wine and 57 Centaurian Yachts entries were involved in a racing incident which saw the 57 Belgian Outerlimits entry make a high speed dash for the harbour with a large hole in its port quarter.
There was more heartbreak for the pre-weekend championship leading 77 Lucas Oil team as they slowed from third place in the mid-stages of the race and limped home with only one working engine.
The closing stages of the race saw the gap close dramatically between the first four boats, emphasising the value of the championship's power-to-weight regulations. Fountain eventually ran out winners, with GFN Gibellato in second and Pignolo 53 in third.
Fountain Worldwide now move into a clear lead that could get even bigger if they recover the 100 points they lost in the Italian Grand Prix of the Sea Sprint race in appeal.

Aux quatre coins du monde, indiscutablement
On aime sa faconde et ses mille défauts charmants
Elle a la grâce brune des filles du midi
Il n'en existe qu'une, voilà pourquoi chez nous l'on dit :
On connaît dans chaque hémisphère
Et partout elle est populaire
Elle part du vieux port et sans effort
Coquin de sort, elle exagère
Elle finit au bout de la terre
Comment vous la décrire, son charme est sans pareil
Joyeuse elle s'étire comme un lézard au soleil
Internationale pour l'amour prend de l'air
Elle est la capitale des marins de l'univers
Il est né le divin enfant, il est né sur la Canebière
Il est né le divin enfant, il est né prés du fort Saint-Jean
Elle finit au bout de la terre
