Open Week and Nations Cup

The Europe World Championship includes various competitions such as the Open Week, that will take place from July 29 to August 2, when about 80 sailors from ten countries will compete to qualify for the World Championship. The Open Week competition will begin on Tuesday, July 30 and on August 2 the prizes will be awarded.

The Nations Cup will be held between August 3 and 4. It is a team race where sailors from different European nations will compete representing their country.
