Presentation of the regatta Madeira 950 Open Race at Paris Boat Show 2017

During the last Paris Boat Show, held from 02 to 10 December 2017, was presented the regatta “Madeira 950 Open Race”, a 3.000 miles competition which will leave from Livorno in June 2018, will reach Funchal in the Portuguese archipelago of Madeira in the Atlantic Ocean (“Returning Point”), and then returning again Livorno in Italy.

An important moment during the Paris Salon was the invitation received, and promptly accepted by Mrs. Mafalda Freitas President of the Nautical Club of Funchal (CNF), to participate on Saturday December 2nd at the Jeanneau Shipyard’s beautiful booth of the awards ceremony of the “Sun Fast Challenge”, a competition held by Jeanneau to its customers and skipers of the Sun Fast 3600 boats.

The regatta was announced by our partners from Nautical Club of Funchal (CNF) during the show and they had the support and space at the booth organized by the Madeira Promotion Association. To those skippers and boat owners who are interested in knowing what they can do during the rest period in Funchal, we advise you to access the “Madeira All Year” website, so that you can start scheduling your stopover days in the archipelago.
