A new classic regatta - The Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte Baltic Classic Master Cup - is organized in Helsinki on August the 13th by HSS Classic Yacht Committee. The regatta is a part of the Baltic Classic Circuit. HSS CYC promotes the series by launching the new regatta a day prior to the Viapori Cup - also a regatta in the Circuit.
The regatta is organized in co-operation with the Scandinavian Classic Yacht Trust - SCYT. The mission of the Trust is to make sure classic yachts are sailed and seen. We, the CYC and the SCYT, believe this is the best way to make the yachts desired and preserved as part of our cultural heritage.
The Baltic Classic Circuit, was announced earlier this year for the Northern Baltic region. The series is based on the new tailor made Baltic handicap rule for classic yachts.
The HSS organized Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte Baltic Classic Master Cup Helsinki 2010 regatta will consist of racing on a “classical” era Olympic triangular courses. The race course will be located south of Helsinki and celebrations and evening events at the HSS Skifferholmen harbor and the HSS restaurant.
The next morning after the HSS organized regatta the participating yachts will be leaving from the HSS Skifferholmen harbor to the start line on the SuPS organized Viapori Cup, the next event of the consecutive regattas with the next celebrations.
All the larger visiting international yachts (i.e. SK 95, SK 120, SK 150 and 10mR’s) will be mooring at the HSS harbor before and after the both regatta days. A tender boat will be arranged for crews of these yachts to Viapori Cup evening celebrations.
