The Viper season kicks off in March with the EFG Barcardi Regatta, whilst UK sailors are still in the midst of cold weather. Miami offers warm sunshine and perfect sailing conditions for the 34 boats that have already entered! The four day International Regatta is preceded by three days of pure Viper racing. This year four sponsored UK teams are participating in Miami with boats supplied via the EFG driven sponsorship programme.
In Europe, Viper sailors are all signing up for the first International Regatta, to be held on Lake Garda in June. Already the Class has entries from Australia, USA, Canada and of course the UK. Other European entries have also expressed interest in racing at this great venue.
Plans are also advanced for a UK National Championship to be held in conjunction with the K6 Class in September.
