St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco, CA has been selected by World Sailing, the world governing body of the sport, to host the 2019 Nations Cup Grand Final from April 9th to 14th, 2019 and will use its matched fleet of J/22 one-design sailboats.

St. Francis Yacht Club previously hosted the Nations Cup back in 1995 using J/24s.

Ten Open and ten Women's division skippers have registered for the Grand Final, including some of the top world-ranked skippers from various countries.
