Dart18 Worlds 2022 not in Vilamoura

Dear Dart 18 sailors, In 2019 during the Dart 18 Worlds in Thailand, Portugal proposed to organise the Dart18 Worlds Championships in Vilamoura Portugal. The Dart 18 fleet welcomed this proposal. We planned to hold the event in 2021. Unfortunately due to Covid the Vilamoura Worlds were postponed to September 2022. For the last couple of months the IDA board has been in contact with the organisers in Vilamoura to assist with the organisation. The Vilamoura organisation guaranteed that, despite the lack of information we shouldn’t be worried. We would get a great event. Unfortunately CIMAV informed us last week…

Gold Cup Dart 18 – looking back at a great event!

It is possible! Despite all the difficult circumstances we sailed a wunderful regatta in La Rochelle. Thanks to the unbreakable optimisme of our frensh collegues from AFIDART the Gold Cup was an event as close to what we are used to as possible. Obviously we regret that many of our sailors could not travell, espacially our friends from the UK. We all look forward to having the whole fleet back on the water next year from the 10th-16th Septembre 2022 in Vilamoura, Portugal! Read here about the Gold Cup in La Rochelle

No Worlds 2021…

but we will be sailing in La Rochelle! Despite our hopes, the Covid pandemia has not declined enough to date. There are still too many government restrictions to travel to (or from) France for some countries. We do not expect that these restrictions will be lifted shortly. Running the Worlds now would be unfair for those who cannot travel. But we do not have to cancel the event. Many participants and families have plans, or dreams, or even bookings to travel to La Rochelle. The good news is that the french authorities and Afidart confirm they can organise a big Dart…
