Introduced for the first time in Canada, the competition will take place in St. Margaret’s Bay and will compete with staff in the 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 categories.
Around 400 of the world’s best sailors from over 35 countries will participate.
The 49er range, and its female counterpart, the 49erFX, pit light dinghy are designed for a two-person crew, while the Nacra 17 sees catamarans competing for a mixed two-person crew.
Canada is very pleased to host the 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 World Championships for the first time. It will be the first Olympic World Championships to be presented in the country since 2015.Hugh McGugan, Chairman of the Board of Directors of SAIL Canada, said.
Nova Scotia has a long history of high performance racing and training. St. Margaret’s Bay is one of the most beautiful sailing destinations in Canada and is known for its high winds and ideal conditions for our sport.
The event will leave a splendid legacy of improved infrastructure for seafarers.
Sail Nova Scotia won the rights to host these worlds in partnership with Hubbard’s Sailing Club and St. Margaret Sailing Club as well as Sail Canada.
