For the 2017 season, more than 300 sailing clubs from 17 countries in the SAILING Champions League (SCL) will compete to identify the best sailing club in Europe. From Finland to Italy, from Poland to the UK – the regatta sailors from the leading sailing clubs are this year once again caught up with SAILING Champions League fever. The SCL is now announcing the regatta dates for 2017:
- Act 1: 11th – 13th August, St. Petersburg Yacht Club, St Petersburg, Russia
- Act 2: 1st – 3rd September, Segel-Club St Moritz, St Moritz, Switzerland
- Final: 22nd – 24th September, Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, Porto Cervo, Italy
In the SAILING Champions League, the best sailing clubs from all around Europe meet and compete in exciting races for the championship trophy. It is the competition for the best national sailing clubs at the European level. Only the best national sailing leagues are allowed to take part: for 2017, the four best clubs from each national league will take part in one of the two qualification races (St Petersburg or St Moritz). From these, the best 15 clubs will qualify for the big final in Porto Cervo at the end of the season late in September. This will then determine the best sailing club in Europe.
