During the second week of September, the Grandson Sailing Club (CVG) will host the Swiss Star Class Championship and the first Grand Slam of the Star Sailors League (SSL). A beautiful array of participants will be present: world champions, winners of the America’s Cup, Olympic athletes, as well as the current Swiss champion among former title holders.
As President of Swiss Sailing and a member of CVG, I am particularly pleased that this first grand slam will be launched on beautiful Lake NeuchÃ¢tel. And as a former Star sailor, I can guarantee you that the top spot on the podium in both competitions will likely be fought on a knifeâ€™s edge.
On behalf of Swiss Sailing, I warmly thank the CVG and their volunteers for their hospitality. I invite you to all to come meet and support some of the best Star sailors in the world.
Vincent Hagin, President of Swiss Sailing
