New class introduced for this year's regatta

Thursday February 21st 2008, Author: James Boyd, Location: France
At the request of several sportsboat classes Deauville Week will welcome
these yachts for their race series this year.

In addition to the numerous classes that have appeared in Europe: Open 7.50, Open 6.50, Speed Feet 18, Laser SB 3, Open 5.70, recently, two new production sportsboats have been developed: the Longtze, on an idea from the French ‘Défi’ America's Cup team and the K.6.50, thought up by the Karver Company in Honfleur, best known for their deck hardware.

The sportsboat class will supplement the the one designs and IRC fleets already competing at Deauville Week.

Deauville Week runs from 28 May-1 June.
