Five Teams from Four Nations to Compete at Blind Match Racing World Championships 2018

Sailors from Great Britain, the United States, Canada and Australia will compete to become the next Blind Match Racing World Champions in one month’s time.

The Blind Match Racing World Championships will be held at the Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club in Rhu near Helensburgh between 3-7 September 2018. This year will be the first time the biennial world championships have been held in the UK.

Two teams from Great Britain will seek to defend the World Championship they won in 2016. The event sees the return of skippers David Brown (CAN) and Walter Raineri (USA) who took away Silver and Bronze respectively at the last match racing championships in Sheboygan in 2016.
