Sail-World.com : JJ Giltinan 18ft Skiff Trophy for Europe in 2009

JJ Giltinan 18ft Skiff Trophy for Europe in 2009

'18ft Skiff JJ Giltinan Trophy'    18ft Skiff

The European 18 foot skiff class association has announced that the JJ Giltinan 18ft Skiff Trophy will be held in Europe in 2009. The famous trophy is the effective World Championship of the 18ft Skiff class and normally sailed for in the home of the class - Sydney Harbour.

Considered the unofficial World Championship of the class this event has until now been sailed on Sydney Harbour. In 2009 this competition will be held in Carnac, from the 27 June to the 5 July and the best Australian, New Zealand and American teams already confirmed their presence.

The European teams will use the 2008 European regattas to prepare themselves for this exceptional event. The fleet will first head to the well-known venue of Campione, on Lake Garda.

This is a perfect location for warming up before the European Championships, to be sailed just two weeks later at a brand new venue, Six-Fours, in the south of France. During this event the European fleet will be joined by a number of teams from Australia and the US.

The fleet will then have a full British week. The continental teams will first join the UK fleet for their Nationals in Weymouth, the sailing location of the 2012 Olympic Games, before moving to the mecca of UK Sailing, the Solent, sailing from Hamble Point.

The 2008 tour will end in Dongo, on Lake Como, Italy, where the 18's will join the Skiffs Festival, an open skiffs event.

The only confirmed destination for 2009 is obviously Carnac. Thanks to the collaboration of the European and UK class during the discussion with the League, the JJ will be raced for the first time in Europe and will probably gather the biggest 18' fleet we have ever seen.

The organization of this event will present a great challenge for the class and the Yacht Club of Carnac, but will help the class to continue its development in Europe.
