LITTLE CUP - C Class Catamaran Championship

HYDROcup - Petite coupe de l'America

C-Class world vice champion Hydros will organise the 27th LITTLE CUP In Geneva in september 2015

The International C-Class Catamaran Championship has been held since 1961. Since the beginning it has symbolized fundamental research and technological development with no restrictions imposed, but conducted on a human scale.

After her 2nd place in the LITTLE CUP 2013 in Falmouth, Hydros will be hosting the LITTLE CUP in Geneva in september 2015 in the spirit of the Class.

The rules are very simple: the yachts must be catamarans measuring a maximum of 7.62 x 4.20 meters, with a total sail area of no more than 27.8 m2 and a crew of two, who are both allowed to trapeze and... that's all! This simplicity is precisely what makes the class so exciting, since the yacht designers are free to explore cutting-edge techniques without any restrictions. It has also driven technological progress, notably by democratizing the use of wing sails in place of traditional rigging, consisting of a mast and "limp" sails.

The last International C-Class Catamaran Championship - LITTLE CUP was held in Falmouth in fall of 2013. The next competition will take place in Geneva (Switzerland) in september 2015. More information about the LITTLE CUP on : http://littlecup.org/
