ECC 2014

Welcome to the ECC 2014

For the first time in its history, the ECC fleet will be sailing around the islands of Sardinia and Corsica. We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to be the organizers of such an event. The wild, rough beauty of Corsica, combined with the unusual elegance of Sardinia make for excellent cruising. Unusual, natural beauty, wonderful cuisine and very diverse ports and towns provide one of the most interesting experiences of the Mediterranean. We very much look forward to seeing it all.

For information on Sardinia please visit the following site:

•The event has taken place in various locations in the Mediterranean Sea and was first sailed in 1994

•Since it was first held the winning yacht has to organize the ECC of the next year
•The ECC is a good mix of an informal amateur event with a professional organisation supported by various sponsors
