As ISAF's longest running event, the Youth Worlds will take on special significance in 2007 as ISAF celebrates its Centenary. Ever since the first Championship in Sweden back in 1971, the Youth Worlds has given the sailing world its first glimpse of many of its future stars, with the list of previous medallists including a host of Olympic Champions, America's Cup winners and offshore stars.

Canada will host the ISAF Youth Worlds for the fourth time in 2007, with previous Championships held in 1976, 1989 and 2002. However it will be the first time the Youth Worlds has been sailed out of the Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, the host venue for the 1976 Olympic Sailing Competition and the annual ISAF Grade 1 CORK Regatta.

The host town Kingston is well known for its 19th century architecture, whilst conditions on Lake Ontario have made it popular destination with sailors across a wide range of classes. A thermal wind rises most afternoons giving 10-12 knots from the southwest, with water temperature varying between 18-22°C and normal air temperature around 25-30°C.
