Mixed Two Person Offshore Keelboat

While initially proposed as the 10th event for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, in December 2020 the IOC advised World Sailing that a further review into the Mixed Offshore event would be undertaken to properly assess key considerations around safety and security of the athletes.

Further updates from the IOC in April 2021 specified that the proposal continued to be reviewed, consistent with the approach taken for other sports, and highlighted challenges for the Mixed Offshore Event existing in the areas of Field of Play security, scope and complexity, broadcast cost and complexity, and World Sailing not having the opportunity to deliver an Offshore World Championship.

As a result of this final IOC assessment, the Mixed Offshore Event was not chosen for the Paris 2024 slate, but the class remains active with many racing opportunities.

The HEMPEL 2021 Offshore World Championship will take place September 15-26, 2021 (more info below). Prospective teams must indicate their interest as soon as possible but no later than midnight Central Time on Thursday, July 15th by filling out a JotForm application at this LINK.
