International Canoe Worlds 2022/3 - Cancelled
It is with regret that the ICF Sailing Committee has to announce that the XXI IC World Championship to be held at Lake Macquarie YC in Australia from 30 December 2022 to 7 January 2023 has been cancelled.
High shipping costs and uncertainty following the Covid pandemic and the war in Ukraine, has severely affected the feasibility of holding the World Championship in Australia. It has become too expensive for IC sailors from other countries in the World to attend in sufficient numbers to make the event viable. The ICF Sailing Committee anticipate high shipping costs could remain for some time, so has decided that the XXI World Championship will now be held in Europe in Summer 2023, probably in Germany or Great Britain. Further details will be published once a venue has been found. It is planned to hold the XXII World Championship in Australia thereafter, hopefully during 2025.
