The Nations Trophy is being launched this year and will become a biennial, focal event in the world of Swan One Design activity.
The Nations Trophy 2017 is the culmination of the Swan One Design European season. It is open to all ClubSwan 50s, Swan 45s and ClubSwan 42s. The event will serve to determine the Swan 45 World Championship, plus the ClubSwan 50 and Swan 42 European Championships. The winner of The Nations Trophy will be determined by taking the scores of each nation’s top two boats from two different classes. The nation with the lowest points score will win. Fittingly, a new trophy has been created by the high-end jeweller and silversmith Buccellati, which will provide the not just the prestigious Nation’s Trophy itself but also prizes to be awarded to the individual winners of the three competing classes.
