Big ILCA Youth Events Coming Up in Europe


We run some big events on our side of the equator but nothing holds a candle to Youth Worlds held in Europe. The photo above is not sardines in a tin but ILCAs in the boat park at the ILCA 4 World Youth Championships 2022 in Vilamoura, Portugal. There were 440 ILCAs and 150 coach boats – feel free to count them.


This year for the ILCA 4 Youth Worlds in Volos, Greece the entry limit is 400 (260 male and 140 female) and it is already nearing full. The entry limit for the 2023 ILCA 6 Youth Worlds in Dziwnow, Poland is 360 (260 male and 100 female) it too is nearing full.


All the information on all ILCA World Championship events is on the ILCA web site Here. We have updated the Events tab on this web site to list all the world, regional, national and major district events for 2023-24. This list has links to the definitive web site for each event so go to the lined site for up to date information.
