On 16 July, the International Sailing Federation published the bid guidelines for cities interested in hosting the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships.
The ISAF Sailing World Championships brings together the World Championships of all the events included in the Olympic Sailing Competition.
Cities who are interested in bidding to host the 2014 ISAF Worlds must
submit their preliminary bid to the ISAF Secretariat not later than 14:00 UTC on 15 October 2010
. Preliminary bids must be sent by email to Alastair Fox
and two hard copies should be posted to the ISAF Secretariat. All bids received will be acknowledged.
ISAF will not accept bids received after 15 October and all bid cities must submit a preliminary bid.
All preliminary bids should include the information detailed in Appendix 2 of the Bid Guidelines and include the support of the relevant Member National Authority.
The preliminary bids will not be judged by ISAF. This is an important stage in the bid process so that ISAF is able to communicate with cities who have a confirmed interest in hosting the ISAF Sailing World Championships. All preliminary bids will be treated as confidential.
Following the 2010 ISAF Annual Conference, ISAF will issue an update to all cities who submit a preliminary bid regarding any changes to the ISAF Regulations or policies.
Any questions about the bid process or hosting the 2014 ISAF Worlds should be directed to Alastair Fox.
