2020 is proving to be a huge year for the WASZP class all around the world, with the introduction of SailGP's new youth racing program in the WASZP and an active racing circuit all over the world.

With new racing circuits such as the seven leg EuroCup and for the first time a Tier 2 WASZP event in the USA with the American Championships from the 16-19th of April in Charleston its sees the class take another step forward in its quest to create a foiling dinghy that encompasses everyone.

With a focus on competitive racing on the water across multiple new exciting race formats and a relaxed beach party lifestyle off the water it is the perfect cocktail of sailing as we feel it should be. The WASZP has not shied away from only hosting events in the best locations, that suit foiling, racing, families and fuels the off-water culture that has been prevalent since the class inception in 2016.

The 2020 season will culminate in the 3rd ever International WASZP Games hotsed by Fraglia Vela Malcesine at Lake Garda Italy. This bucket list location and a favourite for European watersports holidays is an iconic part of the WASZP short history and will provide the perfect back drop to celebrate the first 4 years of the class.

With 100 boats attending last years Europeans and the worldwide fleet closing in on 950 boats by the time the event comes around there are expectations of a fleet around 170+ really putting the WASZP firmly on the map. The European sailors will be joined by large contingents from Australia, New Zealand and the USA with containers already booked from those three nations.

Early bird entries are now open for the event and shows fantastic value for money. With a in bumper social program to compliment the packed racing schedule there is truly something for everyone. With the event kicking off with the second ever International Slalom Championships on the 31st/1sst of JulyAugust and Championship racing from the 2nd - 6th of August in split fleets it will provide an amazing spectacle.

Included in the entry is all the competitors social functions, a WASZP merchandise pack and all racing inclusive of Slalom. WASZP will also be there once again providing spare parts, clinics and a workshop creating an amazing atmosphere. There are also some more events for families, supporters and the sailors to get involved with that will be announced at a later date.
