Sports club RUS7 together with yacht club PIRogovo, with the support of the WFTU organizes a regatta "Cup of the Board of Trustees of the WFTU in class J80".

The competition will take place March 26-31, 2013 in the waters of Palma de Mallorca (yacht club CN Arenal). Every year the Yacht Club hosts a number of international regattas, including the Sailing World Cup.

Kirill Podolsky, Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the regatta, Member of the Board of Trustees of the WFTU: "The regatta in Palma de Mallorca in class J80 is the realization of an idea that we announced on the island of Lanzerote. From this year on, the RUS7 sports club will be organising two regattas in the J80 class. In spring we will hold the event in the Mediterranean Sea (Palma de Mallorca) - regatta "Cup of Trustees", and in autumn in the Atlantic Ocean (Laserot Island) - "Federation Cup". For these regattas, a fleet of J80 class yachts will be used. This class is well known to Russian yachtsmen after three successful regattas "Federation Cup". For the first regatta "Cup of Trustees" in Mallorca we offer a fleet of 10 boats, the regatta has an open format and anyone can apply for participation... In the future we plan to significantly increase the number of boats".

Help. The J80 class boat project was created by Ron Johnston at JBoats. As of today, J80. the only 26-foot short sports boat certified in Class B. This allows her to compete in open water areas with wind forces up to 41 knots and wave heights up to 3 meters.
