The seventh Triskell Cup will take place at Point a Pitre (Guadeloupe) over the 2-4 November 2007, open to all cruising boats and multihulls.
In 2006, 83 crews made up of almost 600 crewmembers overall did battle on the magnificent waters of the Cul de Sac Marin in front of the Ilet Gosier. From the old Muscadet to the Swan 63, taking in the Sun Fast 37, Dufour 40, Opium 39, J120 along the way – perhaps the 90-boat mark will be passed this year?
In association with the SRR (Societe des regates de La Rochelle) the winning crew overall from the International Sailing Week at La Rochelle won six tickets courtesy of Nouvelles Antilles.com and eight days’ charter on an Archambeau 40 from Autremer Concept in Martinique, to take part in the Triskell Cup.
Crews from Nancy, Cherbourg, and Brittany are also expected, as well as crews from Antigua (Caccia alla Volpe, Huey Too, etc.) and some other excellent outfits from the Caribbean. Martinique is also promising to come in numbers; there were fifteen crews last year. We already have an assurance that two boats are coming from Dominica, at least four female crews will be taking part (two from Martinique) and an Italian crew.
On the program are a kick-off day with two races, followed by an ‘aperitif’, with two more races on the second day followed by dinner and Zouk, and a final pair of races on the Sunday and prize giving at the Marina at Pointe a Pitre. The total cost of inscription is 45 Euros per crewmember.
This is an excellent formula to link pleasure on the water, racing and a magnificent show. For information concerning boat rental, contact charter companies directly or email Organisation@triskellcup.com or call 0690 49 57 57.
