Santiago Lange (ARG) is the new President of the International Nacra 17 Class Association. The Nacra 17 executive co-opted Santi officially into the role at an executive meeting on December 8th. Santi stepped up to the commitment and is prepared to lead us through the World Sailing Event review for the 2028 Olympics. He takes over from Nathan Outteridge (AUS) who has turned his focus toward the next America’s Cup.

Santiago is a world-class sailor with unrivaled experience in the sport. He won gold in the Nacra 17 in Rio 2016 and competed in Tokyo 2020. He now aims at Paris 2024 and is a committed defender of the sailors in the class. 

Santi also has extensive Olympic and professional sailing experience, with medals in the Tornado and racing/coaching/consulting in the America’s Cup, TP52, SailGP, and more.

He has for years been a leader within the class and is always approachable to fleet members. He is a champion of serving all sailors in supporting the Nacra 17 Class in its success.

“We are in a pivotal moment for multi-hull sailing in the Olympics. On the one hand, we have reached a point of stability, durability, and performance in the Nacra 17 worthy of Olympic inclusion. On the other hand, the time, effort, and money it has taken to get to this point for sailors and other stakeholders in the Olympic community have led some to question our future.

As a class, we must showcase how the multihull remains the best opportunity for mixed sailing to thrive,” Santiago Lange

Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, is famous for its stunning harbours and sailing culture.
 
It is, without a doubt, a world-class racing and regatta destination. The downtown competition venue offers quick and easy access to a vibrant city with a celebrated culinary scene, fantastic shopping, and dynamic arts and culture. As well as big city sophistication, Auckland also offers an incredible natural setting; beautiful beaches, volcanic cones, island getaways and expansive parks are never too far away.
 
Home to sailing champions and the highly anticipated 2021 Americas Cup, Aucklanders and New Zealander’s alike are proud of their sailing heritage.
 
Here, the Championship will enjoy huge support from the public. Auckland is looking forward to welcoming all athletes, teams and supporters of the 49er, 49er FX and Nacra 17 World Championships.
