The 69F project builds momentum with Persico 69F Cup starting in Malcesine on the 27th of April and the second act of the Youth Foiling Gold Cup confirmed for August.
Uniquely in sailing, the prize purse will be distributed in the form of vouchers to participate in the 2022 season of the Persico 69F Cup, thereby rewarding the top sailors with continued access to high-level competition. Freshly returned from racing the 36th America’s Cup on American Magic, Maciel Cichetti believes that this kind of prize will help drive youth sailing participation.
“We want sailors to keep coming back to develop their foiling skills and this prize format is the Persico 69F class’s way of reducing barriers to entry to top-level racing”.
There is still time to sign up for the second act in Limone for teams that missed the first act in Gaeta. The six boat fleet of foiling Persico 69Fs can accommodate up to twelve teams for the warm-up, qualifiers, knockouts, and final rounds of racing. The shore team will again provide top-level technical support, so the teams only need to show up and sail.
The new sponsorship that the Class has secured will subsidise some of the race entry fees, dropping prices and making the racing ever more accessible. The Persico 69F Class now offers the full regatta experience, including boat charter and shore team services for 7,500 Euros for one event or 14,000 Euros if a team signs up for both remaining acts.
If you are a youth team and want to join the circuit or want to join the Persico 69F Cup that is open to the wider sailing public, please contact 69F representative Francesco Rubagotti
