GC32 Racing Tour

GC32 Racing Tour

4 Seasons

The aim of the circuit is to provide the 'best foiling catamaran experience' for its participants. This includes visiting venues known to provide optimum wind conditions for foiling and race courses large enough to enable the boats to hit maximum speeds. The GC32 Racing Tour has several features in common with the 34th and 35th America's Cup in that it uses foiling catamarans and a similar race format which often includes reaching (rather than upwind) starts.
