The Race History
It seems like yesterday when in 2011 the Gstaad Yacht Club launched the regatta, unique in its genre, that is reserved to boats that are one hundred or more years old. Over the years, the Centenary trophy has gathered some of the most gorgeous and best performing classic yachts from the past century. The event, raced in a pursuit format with staggered starts, has been created and organized by the Gstaad Yacht Club since 2011. The Centenary Trophy features an especially created and constantly refined handicap system, allowing very different boats in size and rig to compete on equal terms, and its format has proved extremely attractive for the sailors and the public alike over the last 10 years.
