In the wake of a very successful winter CanAm series in Port Charlotte, registration opened for the International 2.4 Meter World Championships at Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa FL. As of this writing, there were already 15 entries including defending world champion Megan Pascoe and perennial 2.4 Meter rock star Dee Smith for an event that is still 8 months away.

The event will be held from November 7-13, 2020 and is likely to attract a strong contingent of European 2.4 Meter sailors. US Class president Tony Pocklington has been working diligently to plan a world class event and recently commented "The 2.4 Meter at Davis Island is a world class combination of boat and venue. Tampa is a great host city. This event will be spectacular."

The 2.4 Meter is a 14 foot singlehanded racing sailboat that "levels the playing field" for sailors regardless of physical stature. The exciting little keel boat provides incredibly competitive racing with an emphasis on tactics and sailing rather than physical exertion. In the United States, the 2.4 Meter class has a winter home in Port Charlotte Florida and is growing in the Northeast.

Registering for Worlds If you would like to sail with us, and/or have questions please reach out to Tony Pocklington at or Jen Holmberg (Event Chair) at
