The event

The International C Class Catamaran Championship, ICCCC is one of the sailing world’s legendary events.

Team Invictus are proud to be hosting the first UK international C-class regatta since 1969 and looks forward to an international lineup bigger than anything we have seen before.

To fast catamaran enthusiasts, this is the showcase international event for sailboat design and technology; for everyone else, it represents spectacular multihull racing and matches the world’s best sailors and designers in a Corinthian spirit that is perhaps unique at this level of competition.

The racing will take place in the stunningly beautiful setting of Falmouth in Cornwall, our venue hosts are Restronguet Sailing Club & Windsport International so if you are in the area at the end of September, come along and cheer.
