Para Sailing World Championship ready to receive sailors from all countries

Our partners at World Sailing have published the Para Sailing World Championship Notice of Race and entries are now invited from eligible sailors in any country.

The Para Sailing World Championship will be held at the Southport Yacht Club on the Gold Coast, Australia, from 5 – 11 November 2022, as part of the Virtus Oceania Asia Games 2022.

The release of the Notice of Race signals the formal invitation to sailors and demonstrates the drive towards creating opportunities for participation and competition, increasing awareness of sailing amongst athletes with intellectual impairments, and offering a supportive environment.

The World Sailing and Virtus partnership was formed with the aim of working jointly to promote the global growth of sailing amongst athletes with intellectual impairment. Together with the delivery partners – Sport Inclusion Australia and Southport Yacht Club will bring the event to life in November 2022.

For athletes who want to compete in a Sailing World Championship, this is the opportunity to set sail to Brisbane Australia. A series of informational webinars will be held to inform clubs, coaches and sailors from 10th May 2022 on the entry and eligibility requirements.
