The first leg of the 2020 505 Euro Cup commences this Friday at Yacht Club de San Raphael and more than 30 boats are expected to compete.

In what has become one of the highlights on the annual 505 calendar, the Euro Cup is a four-event series that takes place across France, Italy, Germany and, this year for the first time, Spain. There is a winner determined at each event as well as an overall series winner based on cumulative scores from three of the four regattas.

"Known for its international flavor and its beautiful Mediterranean waters, San Raphael is the perfect venue to break the winter blues," said International 505 Class President Michael Quirk. "The Yacht Club de San Raphael regularly runs high-level events for a range of sailing classes, so the 505 Association is very happy to have our first of this year's championship events held in San Raphael."

The Euro Cup has become increasingly popular amongst not only European sailors but also sailors from around the globe. This year's regatta will feature boats competing from Australia, Canada, South Africa and the United States in addition to many European nations. A number of World Champions are competing including, Wolfgang Hunger & Holger Jess (GER), Ian Pinnell & Alex Davies (UK) and Mike Holt with Rob Woelfel (USA), so tight, competitive racing is expected.
