|The International 5.5 Metre Class Association and Yacht Club Sanremo are delighted to announce that entry is open for the 2020 European Championship in Sanremo, Italy from 23-29 August.
Registration and measurement will take place from Sunday 23 to Monday 24 September, with racing from Tuesday 25 to Saturday 29 September. A series of 10 races is scheduled.
Traditionally the 5.5 Class holds its European Championship only when the World Championship is outside Europe, so this will be the first European Championship since 2013, when it was won by the current World Champion Artemis XIV. The 2020 World Championship was held in Newport, Australia in January.
