IN 2020, THE GC32 RACING TOUR WILL ONCE AGAIN VISIT VENUES MOST LIKELY TO OFFER THE STABLE WIND AND FLAT WATER CONDITIONS THAT ENABLE THE NIMBLE GC32 TO FLY AT 30+ KNOTS.

Venues on the GC32 Racing Tour are chosen to provide optimum conditions to go foiling for the maximum amount of time, while providing teams with an enjoyable experience both on and off the water.

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 schedule has been revised and instead will comprise one stand-alone event in Riva del Garda, Italy.

The event will be organised by the GC32 Racing Tour with its own professional race management team led by PRO Stuart Childerley, plus race officials, international umpires and safety personnel. Typically up to five races/day are sailed on windward-leeward courses with either reaching or windward starts according to wind conditions. GC32 courses are designed to be fair, enjoyable and to provide the best racing while being large enough for the flying catamarans to reach maximum speed. Both events are in southern Europe, minimising logistical hassles and making it possible for teams to use their boats between official races.

GC32 Riva Cup

14 – 18 October: Riva del Garda, Italy

The GC32 Racing Tour returns to Europe and one of its favourite venues: Riva del Garda, at the northern-most corner of Italy’s Lake Garda, has been a regular venue on the GC32 Racing Tour since 2016 and hosted the class’ first World Championship in 2018, after it became officially a  World Sailing-recognised class in 2017. Riva del Garda famously offers reliable, frequently strong winds and flat water, combined with the breathtaking backdrop of the Dolomites.
