The Hague to host 2022 Sailing World Championships

World Sailing, the world governing body of the sport, has selected The Hague, Holland, to host the 2022 Sailing World Championships.

An Evaluation Commission, appointed by World Sailing in March 2018, received two formal presentations from The Hague and Auckland New Zealand.

Their recommendation to World Sailing's Board of Directors was approved Friday 11 May in London.

The 2022 World Championships will be organised in close collaboration between World Sailing, the Royal Netherlands Yachting Union, the municipality of The Hague and TIG Sports.

The Sailing World Championships is the principal qualification event for the Olympic Sailing Competition.

Only the events and equipment included in the next Olympic Sailing Competition are included in the programme of the Championships.
