You may recall that we agreed at the AGCM in Sydney that we would support going to St. Petersburg in Russia for the 2017 Worlds on the condition that the organisers were able to satisfy some of our concerns and more importantly were able to source sufficient funding to cover all container costs. Well I’m pleased to say that not only they have now answered all the issues we raised but have secured the necessary funding/sponsorship to meet the container costs. With all that in place we have today signed a contract with the Russian Flying Dutchman Class Organisation to host the Championships. We don’t know exact dates right now but it will be sometime around the end of July/early August.
This means that the 2018 WC will be in Italy, exact details of venue & dates to be confirmed.
