Double Handed Offshore - Events

Offshore sailing is a universal discipline that every World Sailing Member National Authority (MNA) can participate in. Following the selection of a Mixed Two Person Offshore Keelboat Event at Paris 2024, event numbers for double handed offshore events in One Design boats and handicap racing have increased. This has provided further opportunities for nations to engage, train and prepare.

The discipline of doublehanded offshore sailing is broadly defined for this purpose as any doublehanded race over 50 miles in length, no gender restrictions, racing one-design or under any rating system (e.g. ORC, IRC, or regional). Participation in any of these broadly defined events regardless of the equipment used will increase skill in the discipline.

A partial list of double handed offshore events is being updated regularly and is available below. Please send information on additional events or corrections on this list to jaime.navarro@sailing.org.
