INT - eWorlds 2020 invitation

July 28, 2020, 2:40 p.m.

Hi 500s,

As all of you must know by now, this year our international regatta circuit has been cancelled.. But this doesn’t mean we can’t all have fun together!!

The international board, in collaboration with your national boards, has worked to put in place a structure so that we can all meet on virtual regatta and have some fun!!

The event of the year is going to be the eWorlds 2020, which will take place in the first two weeks of August.

In the first week of the event there will be a few qualifying regattas, during which the best teams will be selected to then move on to the next round, the fight for the title.

The possible dates for the qualifying heats are:

3/8 19:00

4/8 19:00

6/8 19:00

6/8 20:15

7/8 19:00

and the final will be

13/8 19:00

all times are CEST. Please fill out this form to choose the best dates for you.

To make things a little interesting for everyone, the winner of the eWorlds will have a FREE ENTRY at the World Championships 2021 in Colico, Lake Como. So be sure to give it your best and hit those computer keys with all you’ve got!!

Also there will be a commentator, that we hope will make you laugh while you watch your fellow sailors give their best shot at winning the tittle. This will happen via a discord server. All the instructions about the regattas will also be released onto the same platform.

Discord is the platform that we will be using to coordinate the running of the racing. It is free and easy to use and will be our official notice board. From the platform we will be giving the passcode to get into the racing for the competitors, as well as the results and the spectator mode where you will be able to chat to everyone else.
We recommend getting to know the platform and joining the server using this link:
