2022 SAILING Champions League: Asia Pacific – FINALS DATES ANNOUNCED.

After the successful resumption of the SAILING Champions League: Asia Pacific last season we are extremely excited to announce and lock in the dates for the 2022 SCL:AP – FINALS. Like last season the SCL:AP will continue to innovate and promote mixed sailing, with all crews to be 2 male / 2 female as not only is it the right thing for the sport, but it simply makes for a better event.

For the 2022 Finals we will not only have the Open Final (open to all ages) but also run a separate U22 Final the weekend before the Open Finals to give these U22 a chance to compete in back to back events as well at the same location (Newcastle). Each of these Finals will be the pathway for clubs to then go onto compete in the respective World Finals to be held in Sept/Oct 2022 in Europe. The dates for the SCL:AP Finals are:

  • 2022 SAILING Champions League: Asia Pacific – FINAL (U22): 19/20th March 2022
  • 2022 SAILING Champions League: Asia Pacific – FINAL (Open): 26/27th March 2022

Entry and qualifying for both Open and U22 Finals will be announced shortly with the top four teams from the 2021 Finals in Newcastle all gaining direct entry for the 2022 Finals, and this year we hope to have teams representing clubs from New Zealand and the Pacific as well as all States in Australia.

Lock in these dates into your calendar, and start working with your club to pull together their teams to start training. Entry and qualification regatta details to follow.
