The regatta organizers are pleased to announce six countries already registered for the Championship - France, Poland, Bahamas, Portugal, Brazil, and the United States. Floriane Le Floch and Laurence Bourdonnay, from Hennebont, Brittany, have entered, making them the first French team ever to participate in a Women's Snipe World Championship.
The Championship also welcomes back Ewa Kulezsa from Poznan. Poland was last represented when Ewa Kulezsa sailed the event in Roquetas de Mar in 2008. With charter requests also from Spain and Japan, and entries in recent events by new women's teams from Barbados and Lithuania, we are looking forward to an excellent international event.
