Sail-World.com : The Dubai Gold Cup to conclude RC 44 Tour

The Dubai Gold Cup to conclude RC 44 Tour

Dubai International Marine Club (DIMC), the dynamic club from the United Arab Emirates, organises the eighth and last event of the RC 44 Championship Tour 2007 on December 13-16. The Dubai Gold Cup is also the first overseas regatta for the RC 44 fleet. All RC 44’s have been transported together, on their custom-made containers, saving a lot of manpower, effort and extra costs to the teams.

The regatta will reassemble eight teams representing eight nations. Both fleet and match races are scheduled. The winner of the Dubai Gold Cup will be the team with the smallest number of points in the combination of fleet and match races.

The three leaders of the RC 44 Championship Tour 2007 (Chris Bake’s Team Aqua with pro sailor Cameron Appleton, Russell Coutts’ Team Omega and Miroslav Reljanovic’s Cro-A-Sail) are comfortably established at the top of the RC 44 Championship Tour. However, the regatta promises to be intense with newcomers ES Bankers Dubai (Patrick De Barros / Dean Barker), Team Ceeref (Igor Lah / James Spithill) and Team Hiroshi - Città di Milano (Armando Giulietti / Sébastien Col).

The Dubai Gold Cup will start on Thursday, with fleet races. A match racing round-robin is scheduled on Friday and Saturday whilst the teams will complete the fleet race on Sunday. A short coastal race will be incorporated in the fleet race ranking. With such an exceptional group of some of the best sailors in the world, united in a great location, the event promises to be fantastic.

A nice social program will also be part of the Dubai Gold Cup. As Julien Di Biase, the RC 44 Class manager, explains: 'The goal of the class is to get the owners and RC 44 sailors to race in good sailing conditions, but also to find venues where people can have fun once the boats are moored.'

The first RC 44 Champion will be crowned on Sunday, December 16. The Class Association is looking forward to concluding a first very successful season and is proud to announce that the 2008 program is already finalised.
