The 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 Classes have agreed with Vilamoura Sailing who will host the European Championship in October of 2023. This championship will be a critical one in the lead up to Paris 2024 and will likely be the European continental qualifier for the games. Additionally, many nations will use this championship as part of their internal selection process to determine which athletes will be appointed to their Olympic teams.

Vilamoura Sailing has become a premier destination for Olympic training and racing in recent years. Especially in the October through March time period it is one of the best places on mainland Europe to train and race. 49er, FX, and Nacra 17 sailors will already be familiar with the venue and that should make for a fair championship, perfect for getting a read on who's in form before Paris.

The dates of the championship are October 10-15, 2023 and will include a live broadcast of the final days of racing to ensure sailing fans worldwide can follow along with the best of fleet racing. Full details are at the regatta website.
