The venue for the 2023 WASZP Americas Championship has been confirmed as CORK/Sail Kingston in Ontario. Following a successful first edition of the WASZP Americas Championship in Richmond, California in 2022, the fleet now looks forward to its first major international competition in Canada, set to take place from 28 June – 3 July.
The Canadian WASZP fleet has been building steadily for a few years, but over the past 12 months the growth has exploded! Sailing and foiling in Canada is moving into the mainstream building from the momentum of the Canada SailGP team, which is currently in its first season of the global league. Behind the scenes, the Canadian WASZP Class has put in an incredible effort to leverage the opportunity and expose as many young sailors as possible to foiling coast-to-coast. In 2022, over 500 WASZP demos were completed as part of the #weCANfoil initiative in conjunction with the SailGP team and, as is the case all over the world, the sailors loved the boat with many now looking to join the swarm.
Sailors from all over the Americas are expected to join the Canadian fleet. Most boats from the increasingly active US fleet are within a day’s drive and the reliably keen Hawaiians are sure to make the trip. With charter boats available, the event is also accessible to Europeans, South Americans, Australasians and any other foilers who want to enjoy one-design foiling and the famous WASZP vibes at a world-class venue.
Every WASZP sailor is welcome regardless of ability or experience. The WASZP class is one of the most inclusive out there and strives to offer the best sailing experiences to every competitor. Join us to race, to learn, to meet likeminded people and most importantly, to have a blast. Entry is now open, so head to RaceHub to sign up and join the swarm for this landmark occasion.
