The SAILING Champions League has finally set its 2021 season for its major events across Europe. The series is primarily sailed in fleets of a dozen one-design J/70s with eighteen or more sailing clubs participating for the four-day long events.

This year, two qualifiers are planned, one in Kiel, Germany, at the end of July and one in summer in St. Petersburg, Russia, as well as the final in Porto Cervo on Sardinia in October. Fifty-eight clubs from nineteen countries have qualified and are fighting for the starting places for the final.

The top three clubs from each National Sailing League from the 2020 season are qualified for the two qualification regattas. Clubs in fourth and fifth place in the standings can move up. The best fifteen clubs from each SCL Qualifier move on to the final.

For the first time from July 29th to August 1st, the city of Kiel invites the best European sailing clubs to a showdown on the Inner Fjord. The sailing area in the heart of Kiel has already been tested successfully several times by the German Sailing League and guarantees sailing action for spectators. Organizing authorities are the city of Kiel in cooperation with these sailing clubs- TSV Schilksee, Segler-Vereinigung Kiel and Segelclub Baltic.

As in the previous years, the finale will take place from October 7th to 10th at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in Porto Cervo on Sardinia. Already qualified for the final is the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania, winner of the "SAILING Champions League - Asia Pacific".

"The anticipation in the league nations for the upcoming SAILING Champions League season is huge. All clubs passionately want to get back on the water. I am particularly pleased that we are hosting the SAILING Champions League Qualifier for the first time in my hometown of Kiel. We had this idea for a long time," explains Oliver Schwall, Managing Director of the SAILING Champions League.

The final event of the SCL season will be the Women's SAILING Champions League from October 15th to 17th in Cascais, Portugal, organized by the Clube Naval de Cascais for the best European women's teams.
