France to host World University Sailing Championship

Published on February 19th, 2018

The northwestern French city of Cherbourg will host the world’s finest university sailors for the 2018 FISU World University Sailing Championship on September 1-5. A maximum of 40 teams will compete on one of the 20 J/80 regatta boats.

Following two very successful events in Ledro, Italian and Perth, Australia, this will be the first ever WUC Sailing event to be held with the fleet racing format. Competitors will race six windward-leeward courses a day in the world’s largest artificial harbour.

FISU events are where sports meet art, education and culture. The 2018 WUC Sailing event is certainly prepared to continue this tradition, the 28th edition of the World University Championship series that first got its start in 1963.
