Game time at Niner-Nacra Worlds
Published on November 15th, 2021
Three of the ten Olympic events for Paris 2024 will host their 2021 World Championship on November 16-21 in Oman. A combined entry pool of 73 teams for the 49er, 49erFX, and Narca 17 classes represent 29 countries and will prove vital for those campaigns needing to stay sharp in the shorter span between Olympics.
Amongst the Nacra 17 fleet are 2019 World Champions Maelle Frascari and Vittorio Bissaro (ITA) and 2021 silver medallists John Gimson and Anna Burnet (GBR).
The 49erFX class will see gold medalists Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze (BRA) and European champions Emma Siewers and Odile van Aanholt (NED) taking part, whereas in 49er class, Olympians Łukasz Przybytek and Pawel Kolodzinski (POL), Benjamin Bildstein and David Hussl (AUT), and former world number 1 James Peters and Fynn Sterritt (GBR) will be competing.
