Plenty of Opportunties for Male and Mixed Teams to Race the FX in 2017

After four years of back and forth about when and where transitioning male and mixed teams should be allowed to compete against the best women in the world it seems like the regatta calendar is settling into a rhythm where everyone’s requirements can be met.

In 2017, there will be plenty of regattas where male and mixed teams will be allowed to compete, sometimes at the Junior U23 age only. ¬†While sailors should continue to check NoR’s to be aware of any changes, these are the events we believe are open.
