With the highest number of competitors of recent years, the regatta looks set to be a competitive regatta for the best young sailors of the world.
Racing is held across eight events, which use four classes of dinghy and one windsurfer. World Champions will be identified for each event for both Boy's and Girl's. It will be the first time that the 29er will be used as the Open High Performance Dinghy.
