Like in 2015 we are more than happy to announce 4 events for the Farr 30 European Circuit 2016. We wanna start the season with a great venue in Marstand, followed by two events in Germany which are part of big sailing events like Kieler Woche and Warnemuender Woche. Before we come to the highlight of the season, the Farr 30 Worlds in Bastad, which marks at the same time the last event of the Farr 30 European Circuit 2016.
For the scoring of the whole season the best three events of each team will be taken into account, whereat the worlds gonna be scored with a factor of 1.2.
The first Farr30 European Circuit included two events each in Germany and Sweden.
Marstrand was absolutely the right choice for the first venue of the Farr 30 European Circuit 2015. It's such a lovely place one hour north of Gotenburg. Beside our 10 boat farr30 fleet there have been a lot of other orc racing boats. Therefore it was plenty of action in the harbor and on the water. Friday evening one practice race was sailed in 12-15kn. The forecast was calling increasing breeze for saturday and it became true but the race committee did a great job and got 2 races in windy and choppy conditions finished. After racing the atmosphere was really enjoyable in the harbor, nice come-together on the dock with sponsored cans of beer...
On sunday morning the wind was still blowing with up to 30kn and the waves were huge in that onshore breeze, so nobody was unhappy that the race committee cancelled all races for the day after 3h of postponement in the harbour.

The first event of the Farr30 European Circuit 2015 starts with a strong fleet of 10 boats in Marstrand. It's a great mix of experienced teams and a few newcomers. Under these 10 boats you will
find some hot shots, like the regeigning Farr30 world Champion Topas from germany helmed by Dr. Harald Brüning with tactican David Chapman from Australia on his side. But it won't be an easy game
for them, the european Champion of 2013 Matrisen from Sweden is on the line as well and a few locals are always good for a win. So an exciting start of the season is expected...

Over the last years the Farr 30 fleet (ex. Mumm 30) had a great comeback in northern Europe. Every year new teams have joined the fleet and racing gets more competitive.
The European Championship 2015 will take place in Sandhamn (SWE) in the beginning of August. Beside the championship there are a couple of great events at the Baltic sea. At the moment a lot of teams are doing their preparations and starting to plan the next season. Everyone loves sailing in big fleets with intense racing. Therefore we want to introduce the European Circuit 2015!
