EUROSAF announces “Champions Sailing League”

23 October 2012 | 10:16 pm

A new series of championship regattas will be organised in Europe next year, under the name EUROSAF Champions Sailing League. The new series, which incorporates all Olympic disciplines, had previously been announced in May of this year. These regattas will incorporate new innovations in race formats that will make sailing easier to follow and more attractive for sailors, media and spectators alike.

The EUROSAF Champions Sailing League will be staged over five professionally organised events, starting in May 2013 at the Fraglia Vela Riva, Lake Garda, Italy. The Dutch Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblik is next, followed by Sail for Gold at the 2012 Olympic venue of Weymouth & Portland in the UK. Kieler Woche in Germany will be the fourth event in the series, which will conclude later in the year with the Semaine Olympique Française, at La Rochelle, France. The first four events take place in the ISAF defined ‘European Window’ and all five events qualify for ISAF ranking points.

The EUROSAF Champions Sailing League will accept entries from sailors from all over the world and will be a great opportunity to sail against competitors in an inspiring way. Teams coming from Europe and around the world, will be able to compete in four high quality Olympic classes regattas within two months starting at the beginning of May and concluding at the end of June, with a grand finale in France later in the year. Two months of extraordinary Olympic classes competition, all in one continent.

More information will be published soon, with further announcements expected in November.
