The Audi MedCup Circuit, the world?s leading regatta circuit, is now in a position to confirm the calendar dates and venues for the 2009 competition season.
For 2009, the Audi MedCup Circuit, now in its fifth year, will travel to five different venues from May through to September.
May 11th to 16th Alicante, Spain

July 20th to 25th Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy
August 17th to 22nd, Portimão, Portugal
September 14th to 19th, Carthagena, Spain
“We return to five known venues, each which we know and which have proven themselves. They boast excellent racing waters and favourable geographical location. The Circuit dates are set in order to try and benefit from the best weather conditions on the race areas at each of the venues, whilst also forming a geographical circuit that is easiest for the team logistics,” explains Circuit Director Ignacio Triay.
The Audi MedCup Circuit organisers have worked closely with the venues and sponsors to decide on setting the regatta dates that best showcase the host venues and attractions for the visitors whilst taking into account teams and sponsor needs.
For the second time in five years, the Circuit will conclude in Spain.
“There are no surprise events as we return to venues we know. The dates have been set with careful consideration of the international racing calendar,” concludes Triay.
