A Warm Welcome Awaits The Six Metre Europeans In Cascais

The Clube Naval de Cascais is renowned as one of Europe’s top regatta destinations. With a purpose built marina next to the club house, large underground car park, a highly experienced and professional shore and race management team, crystal clear sailing waters just a short sail from the club, and a well deserved reputation for great hospitality, we can look forward to a fantastic Six Metre European Championship 2022 from 2 to 10 September.

The weather in September is ideal for Six Metre sailing with glorious sunshine, average daytime temperatures in the mid 20s centigrade and winds typically of around 14 to 18 knots. Whilst the famous sea breezes do still develop they tend to be less strong at this time of year when the sea is at its warmest.

Getting to Cascais is very straight forward with excellent motorway and rail links to the rest of Europe, plus Lisbon international airport only a 45 minute car ride away. The venue also offers a wonderful range of accommodation options from top of the range hotels and resorts to self catering villas and apartments.

Cascais is a very upmarket seaside resort with superb shopping, great bars and restaurants, wonderful beaches and plenty to do near by. For the golfers there are a number of top flight courses locally. If history is your thing a trip to the 10th Century hill town of Sintra, a UNIESCO World Heritage Site, is well worth it and Lisbon itself is a fascinating cosmopolitan city.

The warm up regatta for the European Championship will be the HM King Juan Carlos Trophy which will take place from 2 to 4 September. Registration for the Europeans will also take place from 2 to 4 September and on 5 September there will be an official championship practise race and in the evening an Opening Ceremony to formally start the championship.

Championship racing will take place from 5 to 10 September with up to 8 races scheduled and there will be daily drinks and food for the competitors after racing and a final Prize Giving Ceremony on 10 September.
