Louis Giard and Zofia Noceti-Klepacka have taken out the gold medals at Sailing's World Cup Series in Hyères, France.

The French RS:X windsurfer continues his winning streak with another solid performance in home waters. Despite a shaky start, Giard kept his composure and improved his results throughout the regatta.

"It's another win for me after Miami. It was a tough week with difficult conditions, but I'm super happy to win this classic Olympic sailing event for the first time," explained Giard.

On the women's competition, Noceti-Klepacka was able to climb the podium and celebrate gold despite a few challenging performances in a couple of races.

In the Formula Kite division, there could only be one winner. French foiling specialists Nico Parlier won all races except one.

"It's been tough with really close racing. I've been really dialed in with my equipment though and had the wind I like so I am really happy with everything," concluded Parlier.
