The Melges 24 European Championship will be held in Hyeres from August 22nd to 28th, 2009. The overall organization will be in the capacious hands of the COYCH with the support of the Hyeres town and harbor.
COYCH is fully experienced in this type of event, since it hosted the same series' world championships in 2006.
More than hundred units are expected to turn up for this unique event, due to take place in Hyères in the late summer, raising fair hopes of an exceptional attendance in terms both of spectators and national teams : Italians – mainstay participants in this series; Germans but also Spanish, Portuguese, Swiss, British and Nordics.
The French, obviously, will be there en force, and will do their utmost to bring the championship back home.
