European Sailing Academies Cup

The idea

The European Sailing Academies Cup (ESA Cup) is an annual regatta-event which was initiated 2011 by Deutscher Hochseesportverband HANSA e.V. (DHH). It was originated to built up a network amongst the major european non-profit-sailing academies and on this way to provide opportunities for mutual cooperation and international encounters of their likeminded sailing enthusiasts.
Each participating nation is represented by its most famous non-profit-sailing academy with their voluntary instructors on invitation of the respective host nation.
This prestigious competition is currently carried out on keelboats with 4-5 person-crews. In addition each represented nation can register a U21-crew.

The next ESA Cup 2019 will be staged October 9th-12th at Centro Velico Caprera / Italy.
