Team Racing Worlds Bids Invited for 2015 ISAF Event

#teamracing – After it was last hosted in Ireland in 2011 but then ditched here the following year, the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) has published guidelines for candidates bidding to host the 2015 ISAF Team Racing World Championship.

Although the team racing worlds was scubbed by ISAF at its November 2012 meeting in Dublin, the world body for sailing now says all bids must be received by the ISAF Secretariat by email  in just a week's time (by 12.00 (UTC) on Friday 14 March 2014).

Great Britain were the first team to lift the ISAF Team Racing Worlds in West Kirby, Great Britain in 1995. Ireland came in second with Australia completing the podium.

From 2003 to 2009 USA dominated the event winning four in a row before the British team broke the trend at the most recent edition held in Schull, Ireland from 27 August - 4 September 2011.

In 2005 an Under 21 competition was introduced in Gandia, Spain and was won by Great Britain who also picked up gold in 2011 in the Under 19 category.

So far there are no indications if Ireland will bid again for the event.
