The 49er and Nacra 17 classes are pleased to announce the 2024 European Championship of 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 will be held in La Grande Motte, France just before the Paris Olympics. The race days are May 7-12 and will surely be a final selection regatta for some nations selecting teams for the 2024 Olympics.
The fleet can expect typical Mediterranean sailing conditions, just like the Olympic venue as a final tune-up regatta prior to the games. The Nacra 17 class held its World Championship in La Grande Motte in 2017, and this venue is one of the French fleets’ home training venues in the foiling cat. The town has a long history of hosting sailing championships and many local capabilities for running regattas.
The Yacht Club de la Grande Motte will be the official host club and final racing will occur off the town seafront of the town square for spectators to be part of the action.
