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.

With several of the events scheduled over three days it is important to have a good prospect of wind. In the past five Cascais Winter Series a total of 247 races were completed out of 317 races scheduled (a 77% completion rate -much higher than many other venues!).

Over the last 11 years, a 96% success race completion was reached for the Grade I event HM King Juan Carlos I Trophy 80 races were held out of 83 scheduled).

The entry fee of € 900 for the full series of 6 events includes free outdoor parking in the enclosed premises of the Club, and cranage for the full period from October 15th 2015 to April 30th 2016.  
Dragons signing up for individual events are entitled to 30 days FREE 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.

Dragon/trailer servicing can be arranged by the Club with established outside providers.

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 or Torbole/Lake Garda. Please call the Club for details.

Convivial style Happy Hour and food in the clubhouse after each racing day of the Series.

Prizes will be awarded to the crews of the first 3 dragons in each of the Series, including the Perpetual HM King Juan Carlos I Trophy and for the overall ranking of the entire 6 Series program.
