After the year most people would probably rather forget, the International 5O5 Class has announced that the Notice of Race for this year's World Championship has been released. The event will be held in the great Caribbean and Covid free sailing venue of Bermuda from 27 October to 5th November 2021.
Remember the America's Cup? The 5O5 World Championship will be better.
The 505 Worlds is expected to attract competitors from around the world. "The event is being held very late in the year so we are optimistic Covid related travel restrictions will have subsided by then." said Class President Michael Quirk. "I can't think of many better venues to head for after the restrictions are eased."
The Bermudan Tourism Authority are providing substantial subsidies towards container costs so this looks like being a very popular event and venue. The 5O5 Class has boats available for anyone who wishes to try out what many of the World's most successful sailors bill as the best sailboat racing on the planet.
