After a successful start to the GC32 Racing Tour 2022 in Riva del Garda, we are looking forward to Portugal. This year, two events will be held in Lagos in a row. At the GC32 Lagos Cup I as the second regatta in the GC32 class, we hope to improve again and defend our place on the podium of the overall ranking. However, before we compete for the second time in Lagos for the GC32 World Championship in mid-July, we are awaited by our Shore Team in Sweden, where we will race in the 44Cup Marstrand a few days after the GC32 Lagos Cup I (more on this below).
As a port city, Lagos looks back on a long and eventful history. Ideally situated, the first people settled in the bay a very long time ago. As the southwesternmost spur of Europe at the gates of the Atlantic Ocean, the Capo de São Vicente offers Portugal’s lower coastal strip and thus also the port city of Lagos sufficient protection from the rough sea.
With good winds and relatively little swell, the bay off Lagos offers ideal conditions for a regatta with hydrofoiling catamarans.
As in previous seasons, there is a very strong line-up at the start this year. Although there have been a few changes in the participants, the line-up is pleasingly constant – and the performance of our competitors is correspondingly consistent.
Follow our races on the TracTrac GPS tracker and on the official GC32 Racing Tour website.
