Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy wins bid for 2016 Vintage Yachting Games

The Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA) has won a competitive bid to host the 2016 Vintage Yachting Games, beating competition from Germany, Romania and Sweden.

Held every four years, the event will head to Weymouth and Portland during the summer of 2016 when 300 boats will race as 10 – 14 different classes attracting traditional models and current crews.

The Vintage Yachting Classes chose the WPNSA as the final due to excellent predicted sailing conditions during the summer and the experienced experts of the race committee. We are very much looking forward to celebrating over 90 years of Olympic sailing experience at the same location of the latest Olympic sailing event”.
