9th Triskell Cup Coming up in October from Guadeloupe

The 9th edition of the TRISKELL CUP will take place on October 30th and 31rst and November 1rst, 2009.

Because of the global and local economic crisis, no sponsor so far has dared to invest on us. Local government’s subventions are not yet voted and therefore due to the luck of visibility we will go for a reduced format of the event. Precisions will follow through in a few days.

New racing formats also: closer to spectators, more technical for fans, more simple circuits for regatta beginners.

Some renowned skippers like Gildas Morvan, winner of Belle Ile en Mer/Marie Galante single handed transatlantic race and Jacques Caraes current technical manager of the famous Figaro solo race will most probably come from France.

It seems that sailors from Martinique are very motivated. Dates have been modified to allow the younger ones on their Surprise to compete against our First Class 8.

Dates are probably not ideal for our friends from Antigua but we hope to see some of them too.

Nice fights ahead of us!
