Organisational Updates

Sport Trap Medal Ceremony Rescheduled, Wed 12 July

The medal ceremony which was originally scheduled for Monday 10 July will go ahead at 18:00 tonight, Wednesday 12, at Portinfer.

Road Closure Update, Mon 10 July

Further to the announcement that roads will close at 08:00 on Wednesday 12 July, it has been confirmed that they will reopen between 10:30 and 11:45 to allow competitors to access the Sporting range at Mont Herault. This removes the need for competitors to arrive before 08:00, but drivers not wishing to be locked in for the day should plan to leave again before 11:30.

Pre-Games Meeting @ Portinfer, Sat 8 July

  • Clay events confirmed as running per published schedule
  • Skeet and ABT will shoot 75 targets on the first day, 50 targets on second day
  • Access to Portinfer restricted on Monday 10 July; everybody must be in by 08:00 before roads close. Roads will open at 10:00 for 30 minutes only, and re-open fully at 13:30 latest.
  • Access to Mont Herault on Sunday 9 July will be restricted due to road closure. It’s recommended that you leave plenty of time to get to Mont Herault – aim to be there an hour before the 10:30 start.
  • Access to Mont Herault is also restricted on Wednesday 12 July due to road closure. Aim to be there for 08:00 – see below for details. [updated – see above]
  • Post-Games meeting will be held at Portinfer 13:00 (instead of 17:00) Friday 14 July
  • A single entry for a team event may shoot that event, but is obviously unlikely to win. You can pair only with another competitor from the same island.
  • Full meeting minutes are available here – thanks Cathy!

Road Closures Sunday 9 July

We’ve been informed that the roads shown in red (below) will be closed from 11:30 until 16:00 on Sunday. Crossing points (shown in green) exists between these times where traffic will be marshalled across the course as necessary.

Additionally, the Rue du Portelet and Rue de la Lague will be closed from 08:00 – but these are near the start of the race and will not affect us. The suggested route from the hotel to Mont Herault is shown in blue.

Road Closures Wednesday 12 July

The roads shown in red (below) will be closed from 08:30 until 14:45 on Wednesday. Anybody shooting Sporting at Mont Herault needs to be there by 08:00!
