IODA 2018 World Championship
Vilamoura Portugal, Thursday June 30th 2016 – IODA Genaral Assembly
After 3 rounds of close voting among 4 bidders (China, Cyprus, Mexico and Switzerland) the Famagusta Nautical Club is the winner, by a vote, and awarded the 2018 IODA World Championship. After the elimination of Mexico in the first round, China followed in the second round. The close fight was on, on the third round of voting with Famagusta Nautical Club, Cyprus taking the win over Switzerland by just a vote difference.
A well presented strong bid that brings to Cyprus the biggest sailing class for the first time for a major event.
Hard work is still ahead for the next 2 years, but we are committed for success and a World Championship to be remembered.
