Sail Newport the organizing authority for the 2022 Worlds has opened registration for the event.
Go to Sail Newport's website for a copy of the NOR and a link to registration. You can also go directly to yachtscoring to register.
The facilities at Sail Newport are awesome. The huge parking lot is great for pre-event boat/trailer storage. The lot also has a fixed gin pole for rigging. Once the boats are measured, dock space for each boat is included in the all inclusive registration package.
