SANTA BARBARA, CALIF. (September 19, 2010) – Renowned in sailing circles for its annual Olympic Sailing Week, Hyères, France, is also popular among grand prix classes who revel in the outstanding sailing conditions found on the Bay of Toulon. In just five weeks time, competitors in the Farr 30 class will experience the famous conditions firsthand when they compete for the Farr 30 World Championship title from October 23-31, 2010. Organized by the class and C.O.Y.C.H., the Pre-Worlds will take place October 25-26, with racing for the world title taking place October 28-31. To date, teams from France, Germany Sweden, The Netherlands and the U.S.A. have entered.
“Hyères is a beautiful place to sail where the wind gods are usually smiling. In October you can either have a Mistral or a very strong easterly bringing big seas with it,” said Deneen Demourkas (Santa Barbara, Calif.), the Farr 30 International Class President. “I am really looking forward to this world championship and the extremely talented field of competitors racing in the Farr 30. C.O.Y.C.H. have an excellent reputation for putting on top notch events, the bay can be a very challenging place to sail and it will most certainly be a test worthy of a world champion title.”
