The Musto Skiff Class Association has launched their 2022 Worlds event logo with an online Event Guide to help class members plan their attendance at the ACO 11th Musto Skiff World Championships 2022.

This year's event will be hosted as part of Kiel Week 2022 and will take place over 21st to 26th June. Registration is already open, and class members are being encouraged to book early to take advantage of the discounted early entry fee of 400 EUR, which will only be available until 1st May 2022.

Musto Skiff World Championship events typically attract between 70 and 100 skiffs and some of the best skiff sailors from all over the world. The previous ACO World Championships took place in Medemblik, Holland, in 2019, with 92 entries representing countries from both hemispheres - including Australia, South Africa, USA and much of Europe.

This year's Worlds is anticipated to be well attended, with Championship racing and social activities happening as part of Kiel Week 2022; one of the largest professionally run sailing regattas in the world.

Participants can expect a one-day pre-Worlds on the 21st of June, followed immediately by five days of championship racing over 22nd to 26th June. The entry fee also includes daily social activities and a gala dinner, as well as an exclusive event t-shirt for all participants.

The 2022 Worlds event will also be an opportunity to celebrate the Musto Skiff Class Association's delayed 20th anniversary and a 10-year sponsorship milestone with the Worlds event title sponsor, ACO, the global market leader in drainage technology.

The NOR is also available on the official Kiel Week 2022 event page here.
