30+ KNOT FLYING CATAMARANS WITHOUT AMERICA’S CUP BUDGETS
The GC32 catamaran allows regular sailors, both pros and keen amateurs, to get a taste of state of the art, flying, foil-born yacht racing at 30+ knot speeds, as pioneered in the America’s Cup but at a fraction of the cost.
The GC32 Racing Tour is aimed at both pro and owner-driver teams who compete on a five event circuit, mostly across Southern Europe with the aim of providing easy logistics, with venues chosen to provide optimum conditions for teams to fly their catamarans for the maximum amount of time.
The GC32 World Championship takes place in Lagos, Portugal over 14-17 July with a practice race day on 13 July. Each daily spectators can see a dock-out from Marina de Lagos at 11.30-1200 followed by racing starting at 1300 local time. Up to five races will be held each day. This can be followed live on our Tractrac tracking system and an accompanying live blog and on our social media channels.
UPDATE: For day one of the GC32 World Championship the start time has been moved forwards to 1000 to maximise the sailing time. Follow it live via the tracking and blog here at www.gc32racingtour.com.
