Regattas for S&S Swan in 2019

Sunday 04 November 2018

Dear S&S Swan Owners,

2019 is going to be a hectic year for the Sparkman&Stephens designed Swan.

Our boats are universally recognised as the most beautiful and designed production sailing boat ever built, and internationally a lot of regatta organizers would like to have a class specifically dedicated.

So, these are the events with a S&S Swan Class in 2019 agenda:

  • Offshore Giraglia Cup (12-15 June 2019, St. Tropez,Mediterranean Sea)
  • Swan American Regatta (13-16 June 2019, Newport, RI, USA)
  • Swan European Regatta (6-11 July 2019, Cowes, Isle of Wight, UK)
