In 2019, the B14 World Championships are returning to Carnac, France. On the Brittany Coast and the site of several very successful B14 Championships, Carnac is the perfect location for these Worlds: The waters of Quiberon Bay offer sailing in fresh Atlantic breeze, but are protected from the Atlantic swell, allowing for fast and exciting sailing. Shoreside, Carnac is well known for it’s restaurants and active night life. For family members that won’t be sailing, the region has much to offer as well. From hikes up Saint Michel Tumulus, over the Quiberon Peninsula with the rough Atlantic Coast, the region also has a number of prehistoric sites with the “best museum of the Megalithic period in the World”. There is no doubt that Carnac 2019 will be an experience to remember - for sailors and non-sailors alike.
The event will follow the now standard B14 Worlds format with a 3 day Pre-World/European Championships running July 25 - 27 and the actual Worlds running July 29 to August 2. There will only be a single lay day on July 28, so adding a few days extra before or after the event is highly recommended.
With the Championships running at the start of the French holiday season, now is the time to start making plans. Affordable accommodations are still available, and tickets (ferry for the UK attendees and plane for the Southern Hemisphere teams) are still affordable.
There is a B14 Class discount for Brittany Ferries for teams travelling from the UK.
We look forward to seeing you all in Brittany!
