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 April 3-5, 2020 on one of the world’s most iconic waterways – 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 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’.
