OC Sport will be the title sponsor of the " Top of the Sport " conference module, chaired by Marcus Hutchinson, debating amongst others the future of the Volvo Ocean Race, the evolution of the Classe Ultime, the IMOCA, the new foiling Figaro Class and the latest news about the America's Cup.

The dates for this year's Yacht Racing Forum (October 22-23) have been set in order to coincide with the opening of the Route du Rhum Destination Guadeloupe race village, and to allow delegates from all over the world to discover the boats involved, in Saint-Malo. A special VIP treatment will be proposed to 25 delegates, with an exclusive guided tour of the race village and privileged access to the teams and race headquarters.

"OC Sport have been supporting the Yacht Racing Forum since its debuts in 2008, and we are thrilled to confirm the continuation of our partnership, with a long term vision ", says Bernard Schopfer, the organiser of the Yacht Racing Forum. " The Route du Rhum Destination Guadeloupe is one of France's biggest sailing events and we are proud to be able to offer this opportunity to our delegates."

Founded twenty years ago, OC Sport is one of the sports' key actors, playing a leading role in the development of yacht racing events. " The Yacht Racing Forum is a great platform for networking and business, and we support and encourage the efforts made by the organizers to further develop this event ", says Guillaume Semblat, CEO, OC Sport.

The Yacht Racing Forum is the leading annual conference for the business of sailing and yacht racing. The event will take place on October 22-23, 2018 in Brittany, in the town of Lorient, at the heart of the mythical Sailing Valley, one of the world's most dynamic venues for the sport and the industry of sailing and yacht racing.
