The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) is now inviting all Member National Authorities to bid for the 2017 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship. The ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship is ISAFs longest running event, having taken place every year since the first championships hosted by Sweden in 1971.

The event has been held in 26 countries over the past 43 years. The 43rd edition took place from 13-20 July in Limassol, Cyprus before the flag was passed over by Cypriot sailors to the Portuguese team, host team of the 2014 ISAF Youth Worlds that will take place in Tavira.

Langkawi, Malaysia will host the 2015 ISAF Youth Worlds before it heads to Al Musannah Sports City, Oman in 2016.

In advance of the 2013 ISAF Annual Conference in Oman, ISAF is inviting bids to host the 2017 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship.

A new addition to the Bid Manual for the 2017 ISAF Youth Worlds includes investing in the legacy of the Youth Worlds. On the importance of a long lasting legacy ISAF Youth Worlds Technical Delegate Antonio Gonzalez de la Madrid said, 'It is vital that MNAs think about the lasting legacy hosting an event of the ISAF Youth Worlds stature can have on sailing within their nation.'

MNAs interested in bidding should contact the ISAF Secretariat here to receive the bid manual.

The deadline for bids is 15 October 2013. Bids will be reviewed by the Youth World Championship Sub-Committee during its meeting on 10 November 2013 at the ISAF Annual Conference in Oman.
