Organized by Fraglia Vela Riva, the ” GC32 Racing Tour ” 2018 will take place in Riva del Garda, from 23 to 27 May; the beautiful area of Lake Garda is famous for exceptional wind conditions and no waves.
In 2017, the ” GC32 Racing Tour ” visited five locations in Southern Europe and there were 13 teams from 10 different European countries and even as far away as Australia, Japan, Argentina and the USA that faced each other during the season. For 2018 the circuit will continue its relationship with at least three of the locations, including Riva del Garda, with a combination of events or multi-class regattas.
The event will bring together the fleet of the ” GC32 Racing Tour ” and the Extreme Sailing Series in the same race.
The regattas of the GC32 Racing Tour are short, but the chosen resorts are large enough for the flying catamarans GC32, one of the best performing boats available today, which can reach speeds of over 30 knots.
Recently, during the Annual World Sailing Conference, the GC32 have received the status of “World Sailing Class Association” from the World Sailing Federation.
