Several crews were out training in fresh winds on the Waitemata Harbour today - with the 2019 World Championships just over a month away.

The World Championships for the Nacra 17 Mixed Multihull and the 49er and 49erFX Two person Skiff will start in late November, and will be hosted by the Royal Akarana Yacht Club. The World Championship will also be an Olympic Qualifier for the 2020 Olympic Sailing Regatta in Enoshima, Japan.
