Entry opens for Inaugural INAS International Sailing Championships


The first INAS International Sailing Championships for sailors with an intellectual disability are being hosted by Docklands Yacht Club in Melbourne, Australia.

Entries are now open for the Championships that will be conducted from January 22-26 next year.

Sailing will be on the spectacular Victoria Harbour, adjacent to Melbourne’s Central Business District.  This venue provides excellent spectator viewing and is close to transport, accommodation, dining, entertainment and cultural facilities.

Four days of fleet races will be conducted in three divisions:

  • Single person (one sailor with a classified intellectual disability) in the Hansa 2.3 class
  • Two person (two sailors with a classified intellectual disability) in the Hansa 303 class
  • Two person supported (where a non-classified sailor accompanies a classified sailor) in the Hansa 303 class

100 competitors from 6 nations are expected for the Inaugural INAS Sailing Championships, so a large number of charter boats are being arranged for International competitors.
