Portugal is joining the group of twenty countries running National Sailing Leagues in 2019. The concept is generating the fastest growth in sailing worldwide, and it now arrives in Portugal supported by the Sail Cascais organization.

3,000 sailors from 300 clubs currently take part in more than 100 events organized by SAILING Champion League participating nations all year long. Beyond Europe, National Sailing Leagues are being implemented in the USA, Australia and New Zealand.

The concept, a simple one, replicates the model of other sports. All racing will be sailed in one-design classes (virtually all J/70's), and will give the opportunity to the Portuguese clubs to compete against each other and fight for a spot in the SAILING Champions League!

The first event will take place from 20 to 22 September and a Junior event will be sailed from 27 to 29 August. Both events will be hosted by Club Naval de Cascais, Wild Card winner for SAILING Champions League 2019 alongside Club de Vela de Lagos.

We are looking forward to see the best clubs from Portugal compete in SAILING Champions League!
