EUROSAF has established a new series of regattas in Europe, under the name EUROSAF Champions Sailing Cup.
The aim of the EUROSAF Champions Sailing Cup is to provide the best possible competition for Olympic and Paralympic Classes. The series is based on established regattas within Europe, in order to guarantee the highest level of event and race management.
To make the racing easier to understand from the non - sailors perspective and more enjoyable for the competing sailors, the EUROSAF Champions Sailing Cup will adopt some new race formats. Being a completely new series provides an opportunity for different formats to be introduced and new ideas to be developed.
The following innovations will be dopted as part of the EUROSAF Champions Sailing Cup:
- Shorter, but more races each day (12 - 15 over four days for "conventional" classes an up to 20 for high performance disciplines).
- The boat winning the final race will win the gold medal
- The "theatre"style of racing
- Spectator boats on the course
Events will be ranked as "100 pointers" in the ISAF World Sailing Ranking List.
