The 2022 ILCA 6 Women's & Men's World Championships are kicking off this week on Galveston Bay, hosted by the Texas Corinthian Yacht Club.

This world championship marks the first time that all three Tokyo Olympic medalists will be competing together since the Games: Denmark's Anne-Marie Rindom, Sweden's Josefin Olsson, and Marit Bouwmeester of The Netherlands. It is also the last world championship for the women's Olympic fleet before the first Paris 2024 qualifying event in The Netherlands next year.

In this fleet full of repeat Olympians and world champions, there are 86 women from 40 countries gearing up to compete. Some other names to watch at this event: France's Marie Barrué, who won the 2021 Hempel World Cup Series and the 2021 ILCA Europa Cup and won silver at the 2022 French Olympic Week; Poland's Agata Barwinska, who won 2021 Kiel Week, 2021 EurILCA Senior World Championships, and 2022 French Olympic Week, and won second at the 2021 ILCA 6 World Championships; and Ireland's Eve McMahon, who won the 2021 and the 2022 ILCA 6 Youth World Championships, won the 2022 Youth Sailing World Championships, and won second at the 2022 ILCA 6 U21 World Championships.

Today was the first day of equipment inspection and registration, which will conclude on October 10, followed by the practice race and opening ceremonies. Racing begins on Tuesday, October 11 with the possible first warning signal at 12:00.
