ILCA is responsible for organizing the annual World Championships in Laser Standard, Laser Radial and Laser 4.7.

To achieve the highest possible quality at all Laser World Championships, ILCA carefully selects host clubs around the world through a bidding process, ensuring that there is a fair distribution of championships throughout the northern and southern hemisphere as well as making sure the sailing conditions are favourable and host clubs have a sound infrastructure to provide for a great championship. To find out more about what is involved in bidding for a world championship, visit our Championship Bid Website.

To make sure that Laser world championships are of the highest sailing standard, ILCA operates an entry system that requires sailors who would like to attend a world championship to first apply for a place. ILCA works together with the national Laser class associations to make sure all sailors are class members and are able to sail in winds of up to 25 knots. Our ILCA Entry System pages for sailors and district officers explain in greater detail how the entry system works.
