World Yacht Racing Forum 2014: 'Growing the business of Yacht Racing'

'Over 230 delegates and 60 speakers from all over the world attended the event in 2013, shared ideas and business cards whilst hearing insights from some of the sport’s major events.'    © Dino Soldin

World Yacht Racing Forum 2014 - The World Yacht Racing Forum is the only business to business conference that brings together the key players from across the whole yacht racing industry. WYRF provides the chance to discuss the issues facing the sport and to share best practice. It also facilitates business development through providing quality networking opportunities with decision makers from all areas within the industry.

Now in its seventh year, the event will be centered around the theme 'Growing the business of Yacht Racing.' Subjects debated will include yacht racing in emerging markets, the role of ISAF, media, sponsors and athletes, sailing classes management and much more.

This year’s event will once again include a world class speaker line-up. It will address the major challenges in the yacht racing world and welcome the key players from yacht racing events, teams, sponsors, agencies and sailors.

The World Yacht Racing Forum 2014 will take place ahead of the start of the Barcelona World Race, with the support of FNOB (Fundació Navegació Oceànica Barcelona). It will therefore be a perfect opportunity to visit the boats involved in this race, and to meet its sailors.

Barcelona is an easy-to-reach and cost effective venue, located in the center of Europe. It is the capital and largest city of Catalonia and Spain's second largest city, with a population of over one and half million people. This city, located directly on the northeastern Mediterranean coast of Spain, has a rich history, having been under Roman, then Frank law before declaring its independence.

Once again the event will be co-located with the Yacht Racing Design and Technology Symposium which will take place concurrently with the WYRF on December 10th.

The World Yacht Racing Forum will take place on 10-11 December in Barcelona, at the hotel Hesperia.
