2017 Laser Worlds awarded to Australia

Posted in ILCA by Sean Bly.

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!
