With the great success of club vs club league sailing throughout Europe, the concept is now establishing pathways for Asia Pacific sailing clubs to compete on the world stage and have the chance to be a SAILING Champions League winner.
The best sailing clubs from Asia Pacific can compete in qualifying rounds to gain entry to the SAILING Champions League – Asia Pacific Final (previously the NSL Oceania Final) which will play out for U22 on the 13/14th April 2021 and for Open immediately following on the 15/16/17th April 2021 on Cockatoo Island on Sydney Harbour.
The top ranking clubs from the SCL – Asia Pacific Final can look forward to a ticket to the SAILING Champions League Final in Europe, to represent their club at the ultimate ‘club versus club’ battle.
The new Asia Pacific series will be run by organisers of the National Sailing League – Oceania, which launched successfully in April 2019 with a three-day final event that drew good support from multiple Australian states and New Zealand. Winner of the inaugural series, Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron (RSYS), went on to triumph at the SAILING Champions League Final in Switzerland and be crowned ’best sailing club in the world’.
