2018 420 Open, Ladies and U17 World Championships

2018 Worlds will be hosted in Newport, Rhode Island, USA. All information at: 2018worlds.420sailing.org

The United States International 420 Class Association, at the 2016 Annual General Assembly meeting of the International 420 Class Association held in San Remo, Italy in 2016 presented a bid to the Member National Authorities of the Class to host the 2018 World Championship Regattas in Newport, Rhode Island.

The presentation was a joint effort of the US I-420 Class Association Board and Sail Newport, the latter being the highly successful Rhode Island Public Sailing Center – headed by Executive Director - Brad Read, Regatta Manager - Matt Duggan and Marketing Director - Kim Cooper.  Sail Newport Facilities are located in Fort Adams State Park on the shore of famous Newport Bay.

The more than 25 Member National Authorities from around the World in attendance at this year’s I-420 World Championship Regattas in San Remo voted unanimously to approve the United States as the host for the 2018 Championship Regattas.

The competition will take place from the 8-15 August 2018 – right on the heels of Sail Newport hosting the Volvo Ocean Race Fleet for their American stop-over.

The 2016 420 World Championship for the Open/Men’s Class; Women’s Class and the new Under 17 Classes (U17) in the Open/Men’s and Women’s Classes drew a record number of entries – 265 competitor boats from all over the World in all Classes combined. The last time the International 420 World Championships were hosted in the United States was in 1997…………..that year it was also sailed in Newport, Rhode Island.
