We have received official confirmation that the 2023 ICF Ocean Racing World Championships to be held in Mandurah, Western Australia, are to be an open entry event.

There will be no restriction on the number of entries that a National Federation can submit, meaning there is no longer any requirement to be selected to attend this event. (CRNZ Selection policy published in November is no longer applicable).

If you do wish to attend, entries still need to be submitted by CRNZ so you will need to inform us of your intention to race. Further details on this process will be given in early 2023.
