BENETEAU CUP - VIRTUAL REGATTA
Participate in the BENETEAU CUP on Virtual Regatta
At 2 pm (12 pm UTC) on May 21st, BENETEAU will fire the starting gun of a new version of its renowned BENETEAU CUP, which will be taking place on the Virtual Regatta platform this year. Take the helm of the new Oceanis 40.1 in a 500 nm virtual loop around the Balearic Islands, with the start and finish taking place at our sea trial base in Port Ginesta, Spain.
Virtual Regatta is a free online strategic game that is very popular with sailing enthusiasts during races such as the Route du Rhum and the Vendée Globe. Enjoy plotting the best course according to weather systems and getting the most of the boat’s performance. It is a great way to share our passion for sailing, though of course we would have preferred to compete on the water!
Handle the new OCEANIS 40.1
The BENETEAU CUP is open to the public and to the entire Virtual Regatta community of over 500,000 members. It represents an opportunity to race on board the latest boat in the Oceanis line, the Oceanis 40.1. With an innovative flared hull design, and steps extending over a third of the bow, take advantage of the potential speed below the waterline and stiffness under sail as you race. Equipped with the First Line pack, this new generation cruiser, designed by Marc Lombard, will win over the most demanding sailors, who will find her high performing and a joy to sail!
WIN A STAND-UP PADDLE BOARD
Special for the occasion, BENETEAU is offering a chance to win one of 3 stand-up paddle boards: 1 paddle board for the overall winner of the race, 1 paddleboard in a draw from the first 1,000 boats to finish and 1 paddleboard in a draw from the first 30 contenders in the BENETEAU Owners group.
