Ireland and Britain shared third place on 12 faults each while Spain, Brazil and The Netherlands all ended on 16 faults each leaving Switzerland to bring up the rear on 20 faults.

French chef d’Equipe Philippe Guerdat’s team of Penelope Leprevost and Dame Blanche van Arenberg (double clear); Anymeric De Ponnat and Armitages Boy (double clear), Jerome Hurel and Quartz Rouge (4/0) and discard scorer Kevin Staut (8) earned a standing ovation after ending on a total of just four faults to secure the silver platter and the winning team cheque of €64,000.
