04/2009 –

As usual, the Eurocat will take place in Carnac on May 1st, 2nd and 3rd. 300 crews are expected for this mythical event which takes this year a special dimension following the ISAF decision to exclude the sports catamaran from the Olympic Games.

For more than 20 years, the Eurocat has established itself as the essential gathering of sports catamarans in France. This event brings together all the existing series and is one of the only event of this scale to combine races and long distance. All the participants, professionals or amateurs can therefore find themselves in the spirit of this major celebration of multihulls.

Concerning the 2009 novelties, the organisation has decided to lower the registration fees for the young crews and to work on the maximization of the regatta length and the strengthening of the warmth of the event. Finally, for the F18, the Eurocat will be the first event of the French “Classic Tour Championship” and will be the place of the first confrontation between the new Hobie Cat F18 and the new F18 drawn by Yves Loday with the boats of the other builders.
