The ISAF Grade One, Toscana Elba Cup - Trofeo Locman, has set the event dates for the third edition of this match racing classic for May 2-9, 2004.
Organized by Elba Tourism and local towns, native yacht clubs manage the Toscana Elba Cup - Trofeo Locman racing. Teams at the Toscana Elba - Trofeo Locman compete for a share of the minimum 100,000 Euro prize purse, among the largest on the Swedish Match Tour.
Elba, the largest of the Tuscan Islands, and third largest island in Italy after Sicily and Sardinia, is located 6.5 miles off the Italian coast. With a rich sailing tradition, Elba has most recently served as home to the training bases for the two Italian challenges for America's Cup 2003, the Prada Challenge and Mascalzone Latino.
