49er World Championship 2005
Klyazminskoe Lake, Moscow, Russia

The Notice of Race for the 2005 49er World Championship has been posted on the International 49er Class Association website. The event will take place from 25 August-5 September on Klyazminskoe Lake, Moscow, Russia.
The Notice of Race is available on the, recently revamped, International 49er Class Association Website. The Moscow Sailing School will host this year's Championship.

The 25-27 August is scheduled for arrival, measurement, practice and the opening ceremony. The following three days are given over to qualification races with a lay day before the final races from 1-3 September. The final two days are set aside for equipment loading and departure.

All entries for the Championship should be received by 12 June and the entry form is available from the 49er World Championship Website.

Last year's Championship was won by Spanish duo, Iker MARTINEZ and Xavier FERNANDEZ (ESP), who then went on to claim the gold medal at the Olympic Games in Athens. ISAF World Sailing Rankings' number ones Chris DRAPER and Simon HISCOCKS (GBR) were second last year and will surely be looking to go one better in Moscow. Also likely to be chasing victory in Russia are Ukranians Rodion LUKA and George LEONCHUK, who were runners up in Athens and currently lie second in the Rankings.
