The final countdown to the Inaugural RS21 World Championship
RS221 World Championship 2022

The inaugural RS21 World Championship commences tomorrow in Biograd Na Moru, Croatia. Hosted by the Ilirija Resorts, the eagerly awaited four day championship promises fierce competition, stunning scenery, marvellous socials and memories for life. There are over 40 boats registered from 13 nations and more than 160 RS21 sailors coming together to battle it out on the water with the aspiration to be crowned the first-ever RS21 World Champion.

Jack Fenwick, RS21 Class Manager, commented, “We have been working up towards this event for a year. RS21 activity around Europe and the UK has taken off, and we are so pleased to welcome over 40 boats from 13 different nations. It’s going to be awesome and thank you to all our partners and sponsors who have helped this vision become a reality”.

The RS21 World Championship will kick off with the Practice Race on Wednesday 2nd of November followed by the Opening Ceremony. The Opening Ceremony is proudly hosted by the local council in partnership with the Ilirija Resort Hotel. The town of Biograd Na Moru have put lots of effort and time to make the RS21 sailors feel special, the RS21 World Championship can feel the support from the locals. Taking place by the town hall in Biograd Na Moru, the locals will join the sailors in celebrating the occasion.

The RS21 International Class Association represents high performance and fun using a well-thought through boat. Responsible sailing is the foundation of the class; not only is the boat built out of recyclable PET bottles and designed to be stackable so fewer vehicles drive to the event. On-site they respect the environment that we all love to protect our sport. The RS21 International Class choose their venues based on quality socials with local food and drinks and quality racing using the newest technology to do this as sustainably as they can.  This inaugural RS21 World Championship will use MarkSetBots with the vision to support fully remote regattas in the future.

As this is the first RS21 World Championship, teams are coming together from different nations worldwide. Everyone is trying to find out what the best set-up and tuning for their boat is, but also practising the most effective ways to complete manoeuvres. The RS21 International Class encourage this and has partnered with Niall Myant, a high-performance racing coach from the UK to deliver two days of race practice and coaching for interested RS21 teams. Niall is on-site until the end of the event to provide coaching and support to bring performance to the next level.

Later in the week, with the racing well underway, the RS21 sailors and their families will enjoy a superb Regatta Dinner at the stunning Marina Kornati Restaurant as well as a Sailors Party where they will be entertained late into the night with live music, flowing drinks and an unmissable atmosphere.

Alex Newton-Southon, the CEO –Design and Technologies of RS Sailing, commented, “This World Championship is going to be fantastic. It’s truly inspiring to meet so many people that are passionate about our sport. We can’t wait to watch the racing unfold and enjoy time with friends and family onshore”.

Events like these do not happen without incredible partners. The RS21 International Class Association would like to express huge thanks to the Ilirija Hotel Resort, Biograd Na Maru town, Harken, Lifejacket Skincare, RS Sailing, Marksetbot, Digital Sailing, More Restaurant and Sangulin Group for their support.
