SAILING CONDITIONS / RACING AREAS
Cascais has proven over the years to have some of the best conditions for yacht racing in Europe. Typically the wind ranges from light to low twenties knots and from different quarters over the period of the Winter Series. With less than half an hour to reach any of the main racing areas Cascais offers varied sailing conditions, with flat water and shiftier winds closer in the bay and larger ocean swells with more stable wind patterns further out west. The weather is normally warm with long sunny spells and an air temperature ranging from minimum 12/15ºC in winter to 20ºC + in the fall and early spring.
RACE COMPLETION RECORD
With the events scheduled for three days each, it is important to have a good prospect of wind. In the past Cascais Winter Series achieved a 79% completion rate!
Over the last 10 years, a 97% success rate completion was reached for the Grade I event HM King Juan Carlos I Trophy!
FULL SERIES ENTRY FEE OF €1000
The entry fee of €1000 for the full series of 6 events includes outdoor parking in the enclosed premises of the Club, and cranage for the full period from November 1st 2017 to May 30th 2019.
Dragons signing up for individual events are entitled to 30 days parking around those events. For other periods, parking will be charged at an €8 daily rate.
Covered storage for Dragons and trailers (mast off), with transportation provided by the Club and long term car parking, is available in the underground parking of the Marina next to the Club at reduced rates.
We have arranged quotations for the professional transportation of boats with or without cars from the main end of season regattas in Cazaux, St.Tropez, Hamburg or Torbole/Lake Garda. Please contact the club for details.

Happy Hour, with drink and food, at the clubhouse after each racing day.
