2020 is proving to be a huge year for the WASZP class all around the world, with the introduction of SailGP’s new youth racing program in the WASZP and an active racing circuit all over the world. 

With new racing circuits such as the seven-leg EuroCup and for the first time a Tier 2 WASZP event in the USA with the American Championships from 16-19 April in Charleston, it sees the class take another step forward in its quest to create a foiling dinghy that encompasses everyone.

With a focus on competitive racing on the water across multiple new exciting race formats and a relaxed beach party lifestyle off the water it is the perfect cocktail of sailing and social as we feel it should be.

The WASZP has not shied away from its mantra of hosting events in the best locations, that suit foiling, racing, families and also fuels the off-water culture that has been prevalent since the class inception in 2016.

The 2020 season will culminate with the third ever International WASZP Games, hosted by Fraglia Vela Malcesine at Lake Garda Italy.

This bucket list location and a favourite for European watersports holidays is an iconic part of WASZP’s short history and will provide the perfect backdrop to celebrate the first four years of the class. 

With 100 boats attending last years Europeans and the worldwide fleet closing in on 950 boats by the time the event comes around there are expectations of a fleet of more than 170 boats, really putting the WASZP firmly on the map.The European sailors will be joined by large contingents from Australia, New Zealand and the USA with containers already booked from those 3 nations.

Early bird entries are now open for the event and shows fantastic value for money. With a bumper social program to compliment the packed racing schedule there is truly something for everyone.

With the event kicking off with the second ever International Slalom Championships on 31 July and 1 August and Championship racing from the 2-6 August in split fleets, it will provide an amazing spectacle.

Included in the entry is all the competitor social functions, a WASZP merchandise pack and all racing inclusive of the Slalom.
