The Cork facilities in Kingston, Ontario, Canada will play host to 102 teams representing 14 nations for the 2014 29er World Championship. Participants will include 10 ISAF Youth World teams fresh from Tavira, Portugal including gold medalists Brice Yriex and Loic Fischer-Guillou (FRA) and silver medalist crew Riley Gibbs (USA).


Such is the precedent with top ISAF Youth World competitors vying for the 29er Class World title. The 29er is an open class for both age and gender, yet with ISAF announcing separate boys and girls fleets for the Youth Worlds beginning in 2015, 68 of the registered teams are youth teams (18 or under) with 17 all-female teams, ready to hone their skills on the world stage and possibly also with an eye on the 2020 Olympics in skiffs. Racing begins on Monday, July 28 with the finals to take place July 31 and the prizegiving on August 2. Event website
