2023 Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy

2023 Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy set to be most exciting yet with the addition of two new classes

The fourth edition of the Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy, one of Portugal’s flagship sailing events, will unfold in the bay of Cascais from the 7th to the 9th of July 2023, with a record six classes across a variety of popular boats.

With three months to go until the start signal, the entry list is steadily growing, including well-known superyachts and record-beating VO65 boats from The Ocean Race. This year’s edition also sees the introduction of the Finn class for the first time, as well as the Snipe South European Championship which currently includes entries from Portugal, Spain and Italy.

Established in 2020 to help raise funds for marine conservation, the entry fees for the sustainability-focused regatta are donated to ocean health projects by title sponsor the Mirpuri Foundation. And until the 8th of June 2023, all entry fees will also be sponsored by the Foundation.

As an annual event, the regatta is fast becoming one of the highlights of the European summer sailing calendar and a signature event for the city of Cascais and the organisers Clube Naval de Cascais.

Gonçalo Esteves, President of the Club Naval de Cascais, said: “The Mirpuri Foundation Sailing Trophy is one of the most important events in the calendar of Clube Naval de Cascais, and has grown steadily over the past three years. The relationship between the Mirpuri Foundation and CNC has resulted in some very exciting events and projects, and the club looks forward to continuing to grow this event to become one of the most important regattas on the European sailing calendar. Having in this fourth edition the Snipe South European Championships and more classes racing than ever before will make this edition even more special and remarkable.”

Sailing fans and visitors to Cascais can expect a sailing spectacle when over one hundred yachts line up for the start in July. The beaches of the Portuguese Riviera are famous for attracting visitors from across the world and the waters are recognised as one of the best spots for yacht racing in Europe, courtesy of the reliable summer breeze where the Azores High meets the low pressure coming off the Iberian Peninsula.
