Sailing Bastad and the Swedish 5O5 Association are proud to invite all 5O5 sailors from around the world to Torekov for the 5O5 World Championship 2020. The Championship will take place August 13-22 August 2020 and is open to all current 505 class members.

Torekov is located on the west coast, in the southern part of Sweden. Torekov is a popular summer resort, sandy beaches, great sailing and a village full of different activities. The wider Båstad municipality has 15 000 permanent inhabitants. In summer the population grows to more than 50 000 people. The bay has fantastic sailing conditions and is recognised by many sailors as one of the best sailing arenas in Europe.

Over 150 boats are expected for the event from all over the world. As usual for the big 5O5 events, the competition will be hot as many of the world's best dinghy sailors will be contesting for the coverted crown. Many say the hardest World sailing event to win.

The racing kicks off on 14th August with a two day Pre-World event followed by the main regatta of nine heats over six days finishing on the 22nd August.

Further information for competitors, spectators, sponsors and partners can be found on the International 5O5 Event website.

If you are interested in sponsoring or partnering with the 5O5 Association for this event there is further information on the Class and the Event.
