Oman Sail to host 2021 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 World Championships

The Sultanate of Oman will host a 400-strong fleet of the world’s best sailors when the World Championships for three Olympic classes kick off in November 2021. Taking place in Asia for the first time in its history, sailors in the 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 class will kickstart their path to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games during the six-day event.

The Championship will run from 16–21 November 2021 at Al-Mussanah Sports City, driving tourism in the governorate and further enhancing Oman’s pedigree as a world class host of major international events. It is anticipated that Olympians continuing their racing careers will take part at the Championship alongside the next generation of high-performance doubles sailors, all looking to start their 2024 Olympic campaign in good form.

Dr. Khamis Al Jabri, Oman Sail CEO, said, “Hosting the 2021 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 World Championships are another opportunity for the Sultanate to share its warm hospitality with the international sailing community. The regatta forms an important component of Oman’s Vision 2040 to boost sports and adventure tourism and will provide a variety of opportunities for local businesses and the community which will deliver positive economic return to the country. This is an incredibly exciting event for Oman Sail and we look forward to welcoming sailors from across the world to our shores.”
