First 18 SE European Championship

We are calling on all Seascape / First 18SE owners for an annual gathering of the clans.

The European Championship is always a season highlight for BENETEAU First 18 SE & Seascape18 class. In 2023 the fleet will gather between the 7th and 11th of June at the picturesque alpine lake Traunsee in Gmunden, Austria.

Central European location, close to the majority of First 18 SE owners, already resulted in promising responses from the owners. Two and a half months before the event, we have 30 registered Teams, which exceeds the number of boats racing in 2022 in Portorož, Slovenia. So we're on a good path to making it the biggest gathering of the Seascape 18 / First 18 SE in the class history!

Union Yacht Club Traunsee will host European Championship. Club's venue and facilities are one of the best on the lake, and their extensive experience with even more significant events ensures an excellent level of organisation and racing. 

Joining the SE community was never only about fighting on the water. Because of the great camaraderie, friendship and socialising, on-shore activities are even as important as challenging yourself for many Teams. In cooperation between the producer and our local Austrian dealer Master Yachting, we'll make sure that will be no thirsty or hungry sailors. 

Thanks to the class spirit and camaraderie, regattas are among the best possible occasions to learn new sailing skills and improve. After every racing day, we organise technical and tactical debrief, where the best Teams from the class share their knowledge, tricks & tips and experience with the rest of the fleet. In that way, the entire fleet can learn and improve on a daily basis. And that's all supported with photo and video material of our Media Team, following the fleet from day to day.
