2023 Shark World Championship Aug 18 – 25 Update

SinC Shark World Championships August

May 3, 2023

With just under 4 months until the Worlds come home to Niagara, the organizing committee is working hard to make this a memorable event on and off the water.

In addition to world-class racing led by Race Director Richard Hinterhoeller, the daily line-up of music, beverages, and food will be a great way to catch up with old friends and make new ones. The Caribbean Night—complete with steel band—should not be missed!

The regatta runs from August 18th to 25th, with measurement starting on August 18th. The cost to register is $725.00.

We are asking our European friends to register as soon as possible so we can arrange loaner boats.

If you need further enticement, on June 1st one early registrant will win their choice of a new shark main, 180, or spinnaker, generously donated by fellow Sharkie Tac Boston and the Doyle Boston loft. We’ll draw one boat from all those REGISTERED and PAID before May 31, 2023. There are 30 boats already registered!

Please try to make environmentally conscious decisions in all your preparations for this year’s Worlds. We have been working with “Sailors for the Sea” to make the Shark World Championship a “Clean Regatta”. We have submitted our plan and have been given “Gold” Status. Please try to make environmentally conscious decisions in all your preparations for this year’s Worlds.

Clean Regattas is the world’s leading sustainability certification for all on-the-water, near-the-water, and water-loving events. Since the program’s inception in 2006, over 3,400 events have shown their commitment to sustainability by hosting Clean Regattas. This program has reached over 850,000 sailors and attendees in 53 countries.
