World Championship

Worlds in Perth Cancelled

3 June 2020 Author: Mark Roberts


The International Etchells Class Association has confirmed that the November 2020 World Championship in Fremantle has been cancelled. Alternative arrangements are under consideration and expected to be announced within weeks. We take this moment to thank the Swan River Fleet and their volunteers for all the efforts put into the setting up of the 20/21 Nationals and 2020 Worlds and commiserate with them for the loss of both fixtures.

In the meantime, the Australian Association in conjunction with the various Australian Fleets is putting together a regatta schedule for the coming season, which will likely incorporate the National Fleet Racing Championship League recently written about by Class President, Mark Roberts, and hopefully a match racing event(s). In the coming weeks the venue for the 2020/2021 Australian Championships will be confirmed.

Looking forward to some fun in the sun as we come out of a pretty tough year to date. In the meantime stay well.
