GC32 World Championship - Lagos, Portugal Second World Championship of the GC32 Int. Class Association

With the GC32 officially receiving World Sailing recognition in 2018, the GC32 International Class Association hosted its first World Championship event in Riva del Garda, Italy in May, 2018. This saw a record-sized fleet of foiling catamarans from across the globe come together with the teams of the GC32 Racing Tour and Extreme Sailing Series competing on the same race track.

Team Tilt,  steered by Olympic 49er sailor Sébastien Schneiter, was crowned first ever GC32 World Champion. Apart from a brief falter in the final race of the event, the Swiss team over three days never finished a race lower than fourth, despite tricky conditions, a variety of race courses and wind strengths that Lake Garda threw at the 13 teams.

For 2019 the GC32 World Championship event will be hosted in Lagos, Portugal over the 26 – 30 June. Racing off Lagos takes place on the Atlantic, but the waters here are protected by Cape St Vincent, the southwestern tip of Europe, just 10km away. With sea breeze conditions and flat water, the GC32 World Championship should offer perfect foiling conditions.
