The season will start on home waters for most in Nyon on Lake Geneva, Switzerland, over the 19 - 22 May. Hosted by Realstone and raising awareness for sailing cancer charity Léman Hope the event will be based at the Société Nautique de Nyon.
The teams will go into this event fresh, all having completed training on the lake during the early spring months. With five of the eight teams based on the lake, the crews have a wealth of local knowledge, making competition intense. However, typically a light wind venue at this time of year, gentle boat handling and critical decision-making are likely to be vital to easing the TF35 around the Lake Geneva racecourse off the coast of the charming town of Nyon.
Through sailing Léman hope supports, inspires and empowers young people in recovery from cancer to embrace their future with optimism. To find out more visit www.lemanhope.ch.
