This is the first ever 49er & 49erFX Oceania Championship, and the event forms part of the Continental 49er Circuit going forward. Perth hosted the world in 2011 and 2015 is another great chance to sail these fantastic waters.
The Oceania Championship is the second of two events for sailors to compete in. There are around 25 to 30 49ers and hopefully around 15 FX’s. This is not counting international teams. International teams are very welcome to take advantage of the great sailing/training/living conditions.
