The first World Championship for the Junior - under 23 - division of the International Raceboard Class will take place in Rostock-Warnemuende, Germany, from 6th to 11th July.
This follows the decision of the membership at the 2018 Annual General Meeting of the class to introduce a new age division of "Junior". Competitors shall be 22 years of age, or less, throughout the competition year; and shall be limited to using a sail with a maximum area of 8.500 sq.m. .
It is hoped that this division will support the development of the class into senior racing on "longboards".
NOTE - under 23 male competitors still have the option to race on sail of 9.500 sq.m within the senior age groups, but cannot compete for the Junior title. 2018 AGM MinutesWarnemuende Worlds Notice of Race
