javeamigos.com | JAVEA: SAILING TROPHY

The Club Náutico Jávea has announced details of the seventh edition of the Trofeo Sir Thomas Lipton Grade 2 ISAF Match Race, a prestigious international sailing competition which will attract the elite in its class to the bay of Jávea between 3rd and 7th April. Teams are expected from Australia, Denmark, Russia, Poland and Sweden amongst others, the participants considering the event in Jávea as a must-attend date due to its excellent organisation and spectacular competition.

The event follows the same format as the America's Cup, opening with a training day of Wednesday 3rd April before racing on Thursday 4th and Friday 5th in a league format to determine the semi-finalists who will continue the racing on Saturday 6th in search of a place in the final on Sunday 7th April.

Arturo Miguel, president of Club Náutico Jávea, confirmed the importance of this international sailing regatta during a presentation at the Ayuntamiento, outlining its impact on promoting the town and allowing some of the sport's elite to enjoy some spectacular sailing in the wide bay. He added that there is an education aspect to the regatta with the general public being able to enjoy the event through special commentary positions. For these reasons, it was decided to maintain the top quality of the event, despite the economic constraints imposed by the ongoing financial crisis.

Mayor José Chulvi praised the club for committing itself to continuing with the trophy event despite the difficult times and also for their efforts in making sailing more accessible to all. He also noted the positive impact that the event can have on tourism in the town, scheduled as it is during the Easter holidays.
