Many hundreds of athletes are expected over 8 days. 50 nations will be on hand to familiarize themselves with the courses and to get to know their future opponents.
Some will even be playing for qualification.

Many disciplines will compete in the harbor:
– Single-handed Laser Radial dinghy (men and women)
– Skiff 49er FX (men and women)
– Windsurf IQ foil (men and women)
– Kitesurf (men and women)
– Mixed Nacra 17 foiling multihull (men)
– Double-handed dinghy – 470 (men)

The competition area is located in 5 separate zones strictly reserved for competitors.

Good to know

How to follow the regattas?
While there are no spectator facilities as such, the Corniche Kennedy, a natural promontory on Marseille’s southern roadstead, will provide an opportunity to follow the regattas and enjoy the spectacle, as well as along the Prado beaches.

Regulations and navigation

During the entire duration of the Test Event, certain areas will be inaccessible and regulated so that this event can take place under good conditions and in complete safety.
During the 8 days, and in the areas delimited below, all nautical activities (swimming, diving, sailing, anchoring etc …) will be prohibited between 8am and 8pm. Certain areas will remain accessible, however, and swimming will be authorized within a specific perimeter (see map below).
