With deep regret, the SSL Gold Cup Finals, scheduled to be held in Bahrain from October 28th to November 20th, 2022, have been postponed.

The entire SSL Team, the Bahrain Maritime Sports Association (BMSA) and the Sailing Athletes Foundation (SAF) are naturally dismayed to have to make this decision with the event so close, but logistical and technical challenges, amplified by the current world environment, made it impossible to host the event in the manner which the event deserves.

Bringing together the incredible National Teams, made up of the most decorated sailors ever assembled at one event, remains the intention of the SSL Team and, despite this setback, the goal remains as strong as ever.

We share the disappointment of the sailors set to compete, as well as that of sailing enthusiasts worldwide and the wider sporting public who were looking forward to following the event.

The scope of the SSL Gold Cup Finals is unprecedented, and arrangements for the event moving forwards will be announced in due course, following discussion with the SSL teams.
