YASA’s Mixed Double-handed Offshore project is focused on developing strong sort-handed offshore sailors and a pathway to the newly formed Mixed Offshore championships and the 2024 Olympic Games.
The first step taken was to participate in the 2019 EUROSAF Mixed Offshore European Championship Venice Italy. Valuable information was gathered regarding sailing the L30 class boat and assessing the international competition.
The YASA Mixed Offshore project in 2020 intends to sail the two YASA J/105s in the Newport Bermuda Race as mixed double-handed entries. Following is the Chicago Mac Race in a J/88. The mac race has been proposed as the continental qualifier for the first annual World Sailing Mixed Offshore World Championship.
