All three reigning world champions are expected to be here in Halifax to defend their titles – Heiko Kroeger (GER) in the 2.4 mR, Alexandra Rickham and Niki Birrell (GBR) in the SKUD-18 and Bruno Jourdren, Eric Flageul and Nicolas Vimont-Vicary (FRA) in the Sonar.

The International Association for Disabled Sailing (IFDS) is the governing body that sets the competition criteria for disabled sailors around the world. IFDS rules allow for adaptations to level the playing field for competitors, depending on their level of disability. IFDS is an affiliate member of the International Sailing Federation and the International Paralympic Committee.

This World championship is a major undertaking for the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron. Many upgrades have been made to the club’s infrastructure to ensure that all facilities are fully accessible to all competitors. The work has been financed by contributions from club members, corporate sponsors and government partners, leaving a lasting legacy for the sport of disabled sailing in Nova Scotia.

The top ranking sailors in each class will pre-qualify for the Rio Paralympics in 2016.
