EUROPEAN SAILING LEAGUE
Regatta sailing served on a silver platter! Based in Riva del Garda, Italy, one of the best sail racing venues in the world!
NEXT EVENT - Riva del Garda, April 4-5, 2020
The world of sailing is changing! We have all seen the new formats of America’s cup and the development over the years of various sailing series. We are moving towards the successes of other sports and extracting all good features from their concepts, both from an athletes point of view as well as spectators and media. ESL is designed for such purposes, but aimed at the broad body of sailors. Welcome to the future concept of sail racing.
Time is an essential issue in todays society and a very important aspect of the ESL Concept. The racing is served on a silver platter for all participating teams demanding only a minimum of time spent for a maximum of sail racing and social experience. The core feature to provide this is of course racing with provided boats. The ESL organization owns the boats, keeps them in immaculate condition for racing and handles all transports to the different venues. When the crews arrive to the venue the boats are in water, trimmed identical and all ready for the day’s race. You just dress for the occasion and enjoy the ride!
An NESL team consists of 3 persons or more. There are no weight limits and no restrictions as to who is sailing for the team. You are free to change team members as you like. However you may not be part of two teams at the same time. The teams are free to have their own sponsors and an area on the sail is reserved for the team as well as space on the website along with some common advertisement for ESL.
Short and fast sprint races with a fleet of 6-8 provided boats, the CB66 ESL Edition. We race close to shore on courses adapted to the purpose.
The boats are identical, with identical gear, but to ensure fair competition the crews are assigned boats by lottery and switched accordingly when changing crews.
We would like to highlight a number of our friends that enable us provide the services and events. They all have great products and services and we encourage you to visit their websites and when in need, consume their offerings!
Thank you all!
Some time have passed since the CB66 Racer and the European Sailing League were launched. Below you will find some footage, images and films, from various events over the years.
