Some ILCA Worlds venues changed and 2022 dates set

The 2021 ILCA 6 Men’s and Women’s World Championships is being relocated to Mussanah, OMAN, hosted by the Oman Maritime Sports Committee at the Barcelo Hotel.  The event dates have been changed to 29 November to 06 December 2021.  Additional information will be posted as it is available.


We apologize for the late announcement, but disruptions of the global supply chain, specifically shipping, have made it logistically impossible to have the charter boats delivered to the original host venue (Houston, USA) from Asia in time for the event.  Oman has offered to host this event, although at a later date.


Given this change, we have extended the application deadline to 30 August 2021, after which you will be asked to approve and rank your sailors.  All existing applications for this event remain valid, although we understand that some sailors may cancel due to the date and venue change.


Also, the dates and locations for several 2022 World Championships have been set  These are:

- 2022 ILCA 6 Masters World Championship – 09-17 June 2022 at the Vallarta Yacht Club in Nuevo Vallarta, MEXICO

- 2022 ILCA 4 Youth World Championships – 13-20 August 2022 at the Capable Planet Clube Nautico in Vilamoura, PORTUGAL

- 2022 ILCA U21 World Championships – 21-28 August 2022 at the Capable Planet Clube Nautico in Vilamoura, PORTUGAL


Please share this information with the sailors in your District.
