In February/March 2017, the first GC32 Championship was held in Muscat, Oman. This was the first ever occasion when the GC32 fleets of the GC32 Racing Tour and the Extreme Sailing Series combined to compete on the same race track.

Since then the GC32 has been recognised by World Sailing, the governing body of our sport and this permits the Class to officially call their next joint meeting a ‘World Championship’. This is to take place in Riva del Garda in May 2018.

This prestigeous event is being organised jointly by the GC32 International Class Association and Fraglia Vela Riva and is being hosted with the support of North Lake Garda and Trentino Marketing S.r.l
