Twenty-four yacht clubs are set to fight for the title “Best Sailing Club of the Year“ and the prestigious silver trophy in the SAILING Champions League Final 2019, due to take place in St. Moritz on 15 to 18 August. After a long summer of qualification battles, it’s crunch time. We’ve witnessed champagne sailing in Palma de Mallorca and in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, and tricky conditions and very light winds in St. Petersburg, Russia.
From the overall 20 nations represented in SAILING Champions League 2019 only ten nations made it into the final: Australia, Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland. The Australian team from Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron enters the competition for the first time. Also among the finalists is the German team from Bodensee-Yacht-Club Überlingen who won their ticket as the winner of this year’s Youth SAILING Champions League at Kiel Week in late June.
VIP guests, partners and journalists have the opportunity to take part in a Sailing Experience or a motorboat ride on Lake St. Moritz and to meet the sailors personally at meet and greets (registration required).
The SAILING Champions League is supported by a number of key partners: Juvia, KRAFTWERK, DEDON, Badrutt’s Palace, Breitling, St. Moritz Tourism, Graubünden, DKSH, SAP and Marinepool.
