World Sailing has selected the Nacra 17, along with Kitesurfing and the 470, for inclusion in the LA 2028 Olympics. These four Events add to the remaining slate of 6 Events previously announced.

World Sailing regulation requires some Events and Equipment to be reviewed every four-year cycle. In this instance, the World Sailing Council voted to replicate the Olympic slate from Paris 2024 in LA 2028 to maintain continuity within sailing.

The Nacra 17 is a dynamic mixed gender, a catamaran that is fully foiling and a conduit from Olympic sailing to professional sailing. See you in LA!

Aailing Aarhus, International 49er Class Association and International Nacra 17 Class Association are pleased to invite the 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 classes to Aarhus for the 2022 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 European Championship from July 1 to 10 in 2022.

The championship will be situated in Aarhus International Sailing Center in Aarhus Yacht Harbour close to the city centre, while racing will take place in the Bay of Aarhus only a few nautical miles east of the harbour. Learn more about the venue and facilities on www.aisc.dk/.
