Countdown to Youth Sailing Worlds

The world’s best young sailors from over 75 countries will take to the waters of Lake Garda for the 2024 Youth Sailing World Championships on July 15-20.

Eleven events are held for the 1600 competitors: Male and Female divisions of the 29er Skiff, 420 Two Person Dinghy, ILCA 6 One Person Dinghy along with the Mixed Two Person Multihull, the Nacra 15, and Male and Female categories in Kiteboarding Formula Kite, and Male and Female Windsurfing Youth iQFOiL, which debuted at last year’s Championships.

Open to competitors up to the age of 19, the Youth Sailing World Championships have been a proving ground for future Olympic champions, including Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze, and Nathan Outteridge, as well as current World, European, and Asian Formula Kite champion Max Maeder, himself a three-time champion at the Youth Sailing.

Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy and borders the regions of Lombardy, Veneto, and Trentino-Alto Adige. Blessed with inspiring scenery, clean waters and constant winds – known as Peler and Ora – coming from the north in the morning and the south in the afternoon – it is a great venue for sailing and windsurfing.

World Sailing has partnered with several Italian clubs located on the lake to deliver a showcase of the next generation of champion sailors. The clubs of Fraglia della Vela Riva, Lega Navale Italiana Riva del Garda, Circolo Vela Arco, Circolo Surf Torbole, Circolo Vela Torbole, and Fraglia Vela Malcesine will share the events.
