March 14th, 2018: The all new RS Venture Connect two-person dinghy will be included in the Para Worlds for the first time ever!
The 2018 Para World Sailing Championships will take place September 16-22 in Sheboygan, USA. This edition will showcase new formats including “Heat style” racing for the RS Venture Connect and medal races in all disciplines.
The two-seat standard configuration on the RS Venture Connect was recommended to the Para World Sailing Committee (PWSC) by RS Sailing and has been vetted for safety and classification for the 2018 World Championships. The RS Venture Connect was selected by the PWSC at the 2017 Annual Conference in Mexico for use at the Worlds.
The boat can be sailed by males and/or females and all competitors must have a valid International Classification under the current Para-Classification Rules for World Sailing. The total points of each team in the RS Venture Connect shall not exceed 8 points unless there is a female on the team. The total number of classification points can be increased by one for each female aboard.
As the PWSC continue to gather input and feedback on sailors regarding ongoing evolution and evaluation of equipment, safety factors and classification, competitors racing in Sheboygan will be invited to test the RS Venture Connect single center line seat configuration with a crew permitted to sit on the rail.
The RS Venture Connect and the Hansa 303 boats will be provided by World Sailing for the championships, reducing costs for sailors.
