38804 Welcome to the iShares Cup 2009!

Six fantastic venues will welcome the iShares Cup Extreme 40 Sailing Series this season. We take a look at the stunning locations that will set the scene for 2009.The iShares Cup 2009 visits six European venues, a mix of buzzing cosmopolitan cities and spectacular seaside resorts, each carefully chosen to provide not only the hottest racing but also the best vantage points for spectators to get up close to all the action.

38836 Each regatta takes place over three days, with as many as 18 fast and furious races, each lasting around 20 minutes. Each day is a mix of corporate sailing races, giving VIP guests and media a chance to get out on the water and experience the Extreme 40 and then the real action of the iShares Cup racing itself — although there will still be ‘fifth man’ guests on board, expect the sailors to take no prisoners in the fiercely competitive races. Things will step up yet another gear for the final race of each event, which counts for double points! Last season every regatta went to the wire including the Overall iShares Cup 2008 winner.

Event 1 - Venice, Italy, 15th-17th May

Event 2 - Hyères-TPM, France, 3rd-5th July

Event 3 - Cowes, United Kingdom, 1st-3rd August
