The bid form is provided primarily for guidance and you should feel free to develop and present your bid using another presentation format if desired. Just be sure to include all the information requested.
Once you have submitted your bid, ILCA will review it and inform you of any decisions made. The goal of the ILCA is to ensure a good variation of host countries and regions each year for our Championship events.
Sometimes the ILCA championships may be grouped together and run in successive weeks by a host. For instance, ILCA 4 then U21 Championships, or ILCA 6 Youth followed by ILCA 6 Men’s Worlds, etc.
If your bid is accepted, we will prepare a contract for your review and agreement, at which point your host site will be announced and published on the ILCA website. If your bid is not accepted, it may be that we will suggest an alternate event for you to consider hosting.
If you have any questions regarding championship bidding or would like to discuss the requirements further, please contact the ILCA office.
