OFFSHORE SAILING WORLDS 2018

- where sport drives technology –

From 12 – 20 July 2018, the Offshore Sailing World Championship is held in The Hague. Offshore racing is performed on different type of yachts between 9 and 20 meters in length.

Clever hi-tech models give each racing yacht a handicap, which are refined year on year. In 2018 it will be even more exciting; the 2 leading handicap systems IRC & ORC have joined forces, efforts and knowledge into 1 combined World Championship Offshore Sailing.

The challenging seawaters of The Hague will host the best 150 racing teams of the world out of 15.000. For over a week a combination of offshore and inshore racing will challenge these boats and teams to determine who are the best in the world.

The sun continued to shine today at the start of racing in The Hague Offshore Sailing World Championship 2018, with many thousands of beachgoers watching nearly a thousand sailors on their boats in the fleet start the long offshore race portion of the program. Class A competitors were sent on a 155-mile zig-zag course off the Dutch North Sea coast with a scoring gate planned at 70 miles, while the Class B & C competitors will race a 135-mile long course with a scoring gate set at 60 miles.
