69F Cup Valencia Mar Sailing Week

Valencia Mar como base anfitriona para inaugurar sus regatas en Europa

What is the 69F Cup regatta about?

The 69F Cup regatta features state-of-the-art boats that employ hydrofoils to soar above the water, achieving incredible speeds and putting on an exciting show for spectators. These boats are similar to those used in the current Copa América, albeit on a smaller scale.

The 69F Valencia Cup marks the beginning of the European calendar for the class, attracting sailors from across the continent to compete for circuit supremacy. Valencia Mar hosted this event last year and plans to continue doing so for the next two years, in 2023 and 2024.

The races are extremely fast-paced and thrilling, with the 69F boats completing the designated course in as little as 15 minutes while reaching speeds of up to 35 knots!
