Applications for candidates to host an IODA event in 2013 will be received until October 31st!!

The deadline for returning applications to bid for regattas in 2013 (October 31st) is approaching very fast. So far we've got bids for the Worlds and the Asians but none for the other events. Please read below what you need to do in order to apply:

  • Download the relevant documentation:
  • Read the relevant IODA conditions, the Regatta Manual and the application itself and contact us if you have any doubt about their contents. These documents are the 'contract' with IODA with regards to the organisation of the event
    • The IODA Handbook contains the Conditions for the IODA World Sailing Championship, the Conditions for the IODA Continental Championships and the specific Conditions for the relevant Continental Championship (the last two are complimentary). The conditions are the rules governing the IODA events and apply for organisers and participants as well.
    • The IODA Regatta Manual contains explanations of the rules in the Conditions and pieces of advice regarding the organisation of IODA events, from the moment you apply up to the end of the event itself.
  • Fill in the application form and return to us before October 31st, 2011.
  • Once the application has been received by the IODA Secretariat the Executive Committee analyse it and will contact you if they have any doubt.
  • Presentation before the AGM: This is not compulsory but it is highly recommended. Somebody from the 'Bidding' Committee should travel to the venue of the World Championship and present the proposal at the relevant meeting (Continental or World - see Programme).

Please note: The application has to be endorsed by the MNA as well as by the IODA member. By signing the application you agree to the terms and conditions in the IODA Handbook and in the Regatta Manual. (please see conditions 7 and 10 of the Conditions for the IODA Worlds; and Conditions 8 and 11 of the Conditions for the IODA Continentals)

Please contact us for more information.
