Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, November 11, 2017
At the World Sailing Annual General Meeting a submission (091-17 “World Championships”) was approved that could have positive impacts on Snipe events. We now have more World Championship options, including mixed and boys/girls youth championships.
Also the number of boats required by World Sailing for a valid World Championship has been reduced. The new requirements are 20 boats (formerly 30), 5 countries, and 2 continents. This can have a positive impact on the Women’s and Junior World Championships.
