   Carnac, France
   Fri 21st - Mon 24th June

supported by Rooster and Brittany Ferries

The 5th RS Aero European Championships are set for Carnac, France and will celebrate the Class' 10th birthday! Previous Europeans have been hosted in Germany, Italy and the UK.

Carnac is situated on Quiberon Bay where we had a wonderful first RS Aero World Championship in 2017. It will be fantastic to revisit France's Atlantic coast and YC Carnac at one of France's most cherished seaside towns. Great coastal racing, a fantastic beach, fine dining and a lovely French seaside town!

The late June date fits with our other main events in 2024 and will hopefully enable Youth who have finished exams to join. The Fri-Mon schedule will assist Brits with affordable ferry crossings by avoiding the weekend and holiday period peak rates.
Racing will be scheduled to start late on Friday and finish early on Monday,
enabling overnight ferries and minimising the holiday days required for those that need to.

The RS Aeros will share Carnac with the RS100, RS200 and RS700 fleets for their Eurocup, whilst the RS400 and RS800 fleets are down the coast at Larmor Plage over the same dates. Having a few other RS Classes there will all add to the fun!

Getting There

By Air
Paris (CDG or ORY) are the largest International Airports in the region and are 5 hours drive, severed by Autoroute or good train connections.
Lorient (LRT), Nantes (NTE), Rennes (RNS) and Brest (BES) also all have International flights and are closer.
By Sea
For UK travellers the main ferry routes to chose from to get to Brittany are;
Portsmouth – St Malo, Caen, Le Harve & Cherbourg which are between 2.5 and 4 hours drive to Carnac. There is also Poole-Cherbourg.
For those in the west UK and from the M5, a Plymouth-Roscoff ferry is an option. Roscoff is 2.5 hours drive to Carnac.
For those in the east UK, a Dover-Calais ferry or the Channel Tunnel is cheaper and Carnac is still just a 7 hour drive.
Once you get to Carnac, the Yacht Club is very easy to find at the protected harbour on the sea font.


As Carnac is such a popular holiday destination, there is loads of accommodation of all types and prices (19 hotels, 16 camp sites, 16 guest houses).
