Motivation and purposes

The Swiss 18HT Association aims the promotion of the 18HT class and its race calendar in Switzerland and the near european countries as well as the care of the comradely relationships among its members. The Swiss 18HT Association promotes the catamaran sport not only through the organisation of regattas and events but also through close relationships with other classes and associations.

Besides the organization of races, the Swiss 18HT Association offers assistance in boat purchasing, organizes training sessions, holidays, different informative events and parties. Thereby always the fun and the care of friendships is put in center of attention.

This site serves as platform for information exchange around the 18HT class in special and catamaran sailing in general.

The Swiss 18HT Association makes an enormous effort to keep this site always up to date and this in the three languages German, French and English. Due to its limited ressources, errors may occur. We accept all critical remarqs and/or any improvement suggestions. For our italian spoken friends the fourth language is planned for the second release.
