As the 2016 Hansa Class World and International Championships come to a conclusion, we have received a preview of our next Worlds.
Representative of the Hiroshima Sailing Federation travelled from Japan to attend the Sailors BBQ last night and issued a warm invitation to sailors to attend the next World Championships. The event will be held at Kanon Marina in Hiroshima, Japan from October 12th to 18th 2018. Invited classes are the Hansa 2.3, Hansa 303 singles and doubles, Liberty and SKUD18.
A video of the venue and local sailors was shown, before the Chairman of the Hiroshima Prefectural Sailing Federation, Mr Tsunehiro Yamane, spoke to the audience about the theme of the event – Peace and Sports – and described the venue and the excitement in Hiroshima at hosting this major event. A message from the Foreign Affairs Minister was also read to the crowd.
Chairman Yamane praised the organisers of the 2016 World Championships and wished sailors continued success in this event, and hoped to see many of the same faces (and some new ones) in Hiroshima in 2018.
