The 2010 Open 5.70 Worlds are to be held in La Rochelle, France and will be hosted by EVR (Ecole de Voile Rochelaise). Racing takes place from October 30th through November 1st. The NOR (in French) for the race is available online. Last year there were 20 Open 5.70s competing including 3 teams from the US. The number of entries is expected to be much higher this year especially as La Rochelle is considered the home of the Open 5.70 as the French factory, Phileas Boats, is less than 20 miles from the venue.
