The Notice of Race for the 2016 Youth Sailing World Championships has been released. The competition begins on 14 December and runs until 20 December in Auckland, New Zealand and the competition format for all events is fleet racing.

Based out of the Torbay Sailing Club with sailing taking place in the waters of Waiake Bay, World Sailing expects around 400 competitors from up to 70 nations to participate in the championship which will include participants of World Sailing's 2016 Emerging Nations Program.

The championship attracts only the best youth sailors from around the world and competition is notoriously tough as competitors are selected by their Member National Authority (MNA) from a host of eligible sailors within each nation. To compete at the Youth Worlds, sailors must be under the age of 19 years old on the 31st December 2016 and be nominated by their MNA.

View the Notice of Race here.

The Notice of Race states the key conditions for the nine sailing events at the 2016 Youth Sailing World Championships and includes details on the rules, regulations, entry guidelines, format, scoring, schedule, venue and courses.
