LPCC 2019: Venue Announcement
This year, the LaserPerformance Collegiate Cup will return to Circolo Vela Torbole in Tobole, Italy. The event will take place from 26 August – 1 September, 2019.
The LPCC draws together university age sailors from around the globe for a unique team racing experience. The LPCC aims to provide young sailors with the highest level of training and competition, as well as a common place to share experiences and ideas.
Up to 14 teams, each with 6 or more sailors ages 18-25 are invited to compete for their country in the LaserPerformance Z420 double handed dinghies. Coed and women’s teams are encouraged to attend – so as to involve as many interested sailors as is possible. Teams will participate in practice sessions through the LPCC development clinic guided by top team racing coaches.
Circolo Vela Torbole is one of the most prestigious sailing venues in Italy, and is known for its fantastic wind conditions. The 2 day clinic is immediately followed by 3 days of team racing with evening social events that include the Welcome Ceremony and the Event Ambassador’s dinner.
At the conclusion of the 3 days racing, the winning team will be awarded the Zachary N. Leonard trophy for the LaserPerformance Collegiate Cup and an all-expense paid trip to the 6th annual LPCC in 2020 to defend their title.
Partners for the 2019 edition of the LaserPerformance Collegiate Cup include: Circolo Vela Torbole, SailLaser Lake Garda, Negrinautica, Maclaren Global, Sailors for the Sea, Harken Derm and more to come!
We look forward to hosting another incredible week on Lake Garda – and stay tuned for coaching announcements and team introductions!
