WPNSA to host 2016 SAP 505 championships


The location has been selected for the upcoming SAP 505 World Championships: Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, UK.
From the 27th July to the 5th August, the venue will play host to both national and world championships. 



Attracting some of the best dinghy sailors in the world, the 505 Class will tune up at the Academy during 2 days of Pre-Worlds / UK National Championships racing on the 27/28th July.
The main action will kick off with the start of both the World and Classic Championships on the 30th July
The 505 Class represents the very best in dinghy racing and is deserving of the best venue available which is why we chose the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy. Sponsored by SAP, GUL and Allen the 2016 SAP 505 World Championships is going to offer ferocious competition between multiple contenders.
Current and double World Title holder, US sailor Mike Holt, will be chasing 3 in a row at Weymouth and Portland, whilst Michael Quirk from Australia and Andy Smith from the UK will try to prevent it.
Competitors at Weymouth and Portland as well as online spectators will be able to track and analyse racing using SAP Sailing solutions.
With top contenders also entered from the UK, Germany and France, data for post-race debriefs will be essential to stay at the front of this highly experienced fleet which includes 5-time World Champion, Wolfgang Hunger.
