Match Race Super League

After a break of several years, a revived Match Race Grand Prix will take place again in Switzerland.
Match Race Switzerland ranks as a new event of the Match Race Super League between renowned events such as Match Race Germany, the Internationaux de France, the Oakcliff International Match Race (USA), and the Kingdom Match Race in Bahrain.

With the return of the America’s Cup to monohulls, the exciting sailing duel-discipline, boat against boat, is enjoying strong tailwind again. This boost has also helped the relaunch of match race sailing by the Swiss Sailing League Association. A high-calibre field of participants from seven nations brings enough world ranking points to raise Match Race Switzerland to Grand Prix level. With the partnership between the Swiss Sailing League Association and the Match Race Super League, Switzerland once again belongs to the venues of the Global Series of 17 events spanning over 4 continents.

Eric Monnin and his Albert Riele Swiss Match Race Team will be coming to Locarno as the defending champion of the inaugural season of the Match Race Super League. He is also looking forward to starting again in Switzerland: “In the second year of its existence, the Match Race Super League is experiencing a pleasing development with a strong increase in regattas. The fact that Switzerland is also running a Match Race Super League Level 1 Grand Prix is a very gratifying development. We are glad that after a few years of absence, Switzerland has another world-class match race.”

In the wake of the Swiss Grand Prix, further match race regattas and a Swiss Sailing Match Race series are to be created in Switzerland, which will enable young teams to gain experience in the competition and qualify for a starting slot at Match Race Switzerland and eaqually will recommend the team for Match Race Super League events.
