Proposed Venue change for Euro Cup 4. – PALAMOS SPAIN

DATES (tbc) 13th -16th October 2022

The 5O5 Association is currently discussing the option to held the 4th leg of the Euro cup in 2022 at the Club Nautic de Costa Brava. This is a great venue for the event. The main attraction being:

  • Nice breeze and still warm temperatures;
  • Very experienced race management personnel;
  • Palamos is only 1.5 hours drive from the French Border
  • Plenty of space for trailers and competitor vehicles
  • Space for camper vans
  • great beach and restaurants
  • club has a restaurant and swimming pool

last year (2021) Euro Cup Leg 4 was held in Hayling Island UK

Day 1 was cancelled due to high winds. 3 races in challenging conditions were held on day 2 after an extended postponement due to the sea state getting out of the harbour. With forecast of 30- 40 knots, day 3 was also cancelled. An early start on day 4 allowed the race committee to get 2 more races in before the wind went nuclear again. Very challenging regatta for competitors, race committee and rescue boats. Even Christophe Favreau taking the photos had a torrid time.

Well done to Roger Gilbert and Ben McGrane for taking out the event for the second time in a row.
