Soto 40 European Championship is the new European circuit for the class and will consist of five events that will crown an overall European champion and the winner of the Owner Driver Trophy.

The first event of the Soto 40 European Championship will be Trofeo Conde de Godo organized by Real Club Nautico de Barcelona from May 24th to 27th. This regatta will be the starting point and the first chance for teams to measure their true potential in this Championship.

The second meeting of the Soto 40 European Championship will be framed in the prestigious Sardinia Cup (Offshore nations teams World Championship) organized by Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in Porto Cervo, from June 11th to 16th, where Soto 40 boats will compete together with the TP52/IRC 52 class.

In July comes the great event of the Mediterranean, the Copa del Rey Audi Mapfre. This year, in order to avoid clashing with the London Olympics, the Royal event will be held from July 18th to 21st in the Bay of Palma, a date with all the usual attractions of the Palma regatta.

In mid-August, the Soto 40 fleet will move to Sotogrande to celebrate the fourth round of the Soto 40 European Championship, during the Sotogrande Cup, held from August the 10th to 13th, coinciding with the prestigious Polo tournament.

The Finals of the Soto 40 European Championship will be in Valencia, more specifically in the Port America's Cup from September 19th to 22nd in which every race will score double points. The event should decide the Soto 40 European Champion and Soto 40 European Owner Driver Champion.

Although not included within the Soto 40 European Championship the fleet has agreed on going to Palma Vela Mapfre regatta, organized by Real Club Nautico de Palma, between April 19th and 22nd, so this regatta will be a test event for the Mediterranean Soto 40 Class, in what some define as 'official training' for the Soto 40 European Championship.
