Eight Metre Yachts by Division

The International Eight Metre World Cup Yachts of all vintages start and race together during the World Championships. This poses a challenge to the scoring as the design of the yachts covers a period of more then 100 years and 3 consecutive rating rules. Although the International Rule provided room for naval architects to develop their ideas, the framework in which this could be done was, and is, tight meaning that the performance difference is small enough to provide interesting racing between yachts of the different design periods, yet it is too significant not to provide additional trophies for the different age groups.

 

By clicking on one of the Divisions you can jump to that division directly or just scroll down thru all of them.

First Rule

The roots of the 8-Metre Class go back to when the International Rule and the IYRU were established. The First International Rule provided superb racing for the approximately 140 8-Metres built under that rule in the period between 1908 and 1919. Almost 100 years later few of these beautiful classic yachts have survived and the IEMA applauds their participation in the official World Championships. The largest concentration of these yachts is found on Lake Constance in Germany and their association has made available the First Rule Cup.

Modern

These yachts have been designed and built after 1967 and their design often resembles successful America’s Cup 12-Metres. Other than the restrictions specified in the Class Rules, the modern boats have no limits on materials for the hull, sails, spars and deck gear. Most of them are equipped with state of the art systems, similar to what can be found on the most advanced Modern race yachts. The Moderns race for the World Cup and the Coppa d’Italia.
