Welcome

Welcome to the home page for the 2016 OK Dinghy World Championships to be held in Quiberon, France from 22-29 July 2016.

The host club, La Société des Régates de Saint Pierre Quiberon (SRSP) has a cosy base with direct access to the Kerbourgnec beach. It is also an FFV National Sailing School for windsurfers, dinghies and catamarans and has hosted many prestigious regattas and championships.

The sailing area is sheltered from the open Atlantic by the peninsula and a few islands to the south of the peninsula. The west coast of the peninsula is called the Côte Sauvage – the wild coast, as the next land to the west is Newfoundland and here the waters of the Bay of Biscay can be wild indeed.

The east coast, where the sailing area is, can deliver perfect sailing conditions, already experienced by many OK sailors during the 2013 Pre-European regatta and the 2013 Europeans in Carnac, which is located along the coast from Quiberon, but on the same waters.

Entry is open in 2016 but payments still have to go through your national association.
