The start of the GC32 Racing Tour has been delayed due to Covid, and a new Spanish venue added.
The 2021 GC32 Racing Tour will now start with two events in Lagos on Portugal’s Algarve coast. The first, as originally scheduled, will take place in late June/early July and will be followed by a second in late July/early August. The circuit will then continue as planned to southeast Sardinia.
New for this the ninth season of the GC32 Racing Tour will be its grand finale, a return to Spain but this time racing on the Mar Menor in early November.
The intention is for the previously scheduled first two events of 2021– in the circuit’s familiar home of Riva del Garda and a new venue of Port Camargue au Grau du Roi in the south of France – to take place in 2022.
Christian Scherrer, manager of the GC32 Racing Tour, said: “We understand that for some teams it might not be ideal to have two events at the same venue, but in a year like this, we believe that this is a good option to keep things simple, reduce costs while providing good sailing conditions and hospitality. We are grateful to have in Lagos local event partners that are ready to welcome us twice in the same season.”
