RC44 Cascais Cup: 2 - 6 October 2013

After an exciting debut in 2012, which saw the RC44 fleet challenged with a whole range of conditions, from howling winds to a light shifty sea breeze, the class once again returns to the picturesque bay of Cascais, Portugal.

Overlooked by the historic fortress of StÂȘ Maria and surrounded by a charming village, Cascais is the home of the Clube Naval de Cascais.

The Clube Naval de Cascais was first founded in 1938 by sailing enthusiasts and has long been dedicated to promoting sailing in Portugal. Frequented by global yachting eventsincluding the America’s Cup World Series in August 2011, the Med-Cup, the Dragon Gold Cup, the TRANSAT Classic and many more, due to the reliable nature of the wind conditions and challenging race area.

The Clube Naval de Cascais offers stunning berthing conditions, as well as an outdoor shopping centre, charming 70 room hotel, Club-House with a private entrance, varied social calendar and the vibrant nightlife in the picturesque and sophisticated Village of Cascais.
