Three cities in Europe have submitted expressions of interest in hosting sailing's ISAF World Championships in 2018, while a bid from a fourth candidate will be considered early next week.

Aarhus in Denmark, The Hague in the Netherlands and Gdynia in Poland all met the March 1 deadline of International Sailing Federation (ISAF) to submit bids to host the quadrennial world championships for all Olympic disciplines.

However, it is reported according to Sportcal that a fourth bid has now come in, from an unknown city thought to be in Asia.

Because that bid missed the original deadline, it will go before the ISAF 2018 World Championships Evaluation Panel on Monday, which will decide whether the bid can proceed.

The candidates are expected to present their plans to the evaluation panel, chaired by ISAF vice-president Chris Atkins, at the federation's headquarters in Southampton, in the south of England, on March 25.

The panel will produce a report, and recommend the host city to the ISAF executive committee at its mid-year meeting on May 10, when the committee will either accept the recommendation or ask the panel to review its decision.

Aarhus, The Hague and Gdynia all bid unsuccessfully to host the 2014 ISAF World Championships, which were awarded to Santander in Spain three years ago.

All three European bidders from northern part of Europe are very experienced organisers having held many international events during the years. If the Asian bid is accepted, the main question will be, whether the Championship should be in Europe once again, or in Asia for the first time.

The 2014 ISAF World Championships take place on September 8 to 21, with some 1,400 sailors and more than 1,000 boats expected from 80 countries.

The 2011 edition was held in Perth, Australia, with Cadiz in Spain and Cascais, Portugal having held the first two events in 2003 and 2007, respectively.
