2024 World Championship starts today!

The 2024 420 World Championship starts today in Rio, Brazil. The first major event of the year sets sail with more than 100 boats from 15 different countries. Races will take place in the Rio de Janeiro bay and the event is hosted on Iate Club de Rio de Janeiro. 

The first race was all about measurement and training for the crews with half the fleet going through measurement today and the other half following tomorrow. On the afternoon the Opening Ceremony took place with athletes parading inside the Iate Club de Rio de Janeiro and the city's band giving the rythm.

Sailors will be divided to two fleets, Male/Mixed and Female with the U17 teams joining the more experienced ones in the same starting line for the first time. Twelve races are scheduled in six days and all the crews are ready to kick-off 2024 with one of the most important regattas of the year. 

Follow the event through our website and social media with daily reports and highlights! Follow also the club's media for on-water livestreaming.
