Youth Sailing World Championship - ISAF invite bids to host 2016 event

by ISAF on 29 Aug 2012
. .
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. ISAF is now inviting bids to host the 2016 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship.

The event has been held in 25 countries over the past 42 years. The 42nd edition took place from 12-21 July in Dublin Bay, Ireland before the flag was handed over to Limassol, Cyprus who will host the 2013 version. Tavira, Portugal will welcome the best young sailors in 2014 before the event heads to Langkawi, Malaysia in 2015.

In advance of the 2012 ISAF Annual Conference in Ireland, ISAF is inviting bids to host the 2016 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship.

All ISAF Member National Authorities (MNAs) are invited to bid for the event. MNAs interested in bidding should contact the ISAF Secretariat, Antonio(at)isaf.co.uk, to receive the bid manual.

The deadline for bids is 17 October 2012. Bids will be reviewed by the Youth World Championship Sub-Committee during its meeting on 3 November 2012 at the ISAF Annual Conference in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland.

Since 2003, the ISAF Athlete Participation Programme (APP) has assisted young athletes from developing sailing nations to attend the ISAF Youth Worlds by providing funding and coaching support.

The APP has directly supported the participation of over 140 sailors and helped introduce 12 new nations to the Championship, further spreading the appeal of youth sailing's premier event.

Great Britain is the current holder of the Nations Trophy, awarded annually to the top performing nation at the Youth Worlds.

Past notable winners include American's Cup skippers, Russell Coutts (NZL) and Chris Dickson (NZL), Volvo Ocean Race sailor Stuart Bannatyne (NZL) and many Olympic Champions including Robert Scheidt (BRA), Ben Ainslie (GBR), Alessandra Sensini (ITA) and Iain Percy (GBR).
