At the ILCA council meeting last week in Europe it was announced the world championship event for Laser Standard (Men), Laser Radial (Women) & the Laser Masters will be held at the Adelaide Sailing Club in 2017. The intention is to hold the open events in January & the Masters in February.
This is great news for Laser sailing in Australia & should help the Laser districts increase their membership. The total number of places allocated to a country in a world event is proportional to the number of members.
The sequence for Laser world championships is now 2015- Kingston, Canada; 2016- TBA, Mexico; 2017 Adelaide, Australia.
It’s not too early to start training!
