The Green Fleet is open to any age and any rig. The entry fee is the same for Green Fleet.

Green Fleet sailing may take place on the main course or separate course, subject to numbers.

The venue for the 2023 WASZP Americas Championship has been confirmed as CORK / Sail Kingston in Ontario, Canada. Following a successful first edition of the WASZP Americas Championship in Richmond, California in 2022, the fleet now looks forward to its first major international competition in Canada, set to take place from 28 June – 3 July.

The Canadian WASZP fleet has been building steadily for a few years, but over the past 12 months the growth has exploded! Sailing and foiling in Canada is moving into the mainstream building from the momentum of the Canada SailGP team, which is currently in its first season of the global league. Behind the scenes, the Canadian WASZP Class has put in an incredible effort to leverage the opportunity and expose as many young sailors as possible to foiling coast-to-coast. In 2022, over 500 WASZP demos were completed as part of the #weCANfoil initiative in conjunction with the SailGP team and, as is the case all over the world, the sailors loved the boat with many now looking to join the swarm.

“The collective effort from the WASZP and foiling community in Canada has been nothing short of inspiring and has really set the bar high. Heading to Canada for a major WASZP event in 2023 is the next step in the journey and we can’t wait to see the impact this has on the class. WASZP sailing is all about the overall sailor experience and I know the buzz at this event will be infectious, on and off the water.” – Martin Evans, WASZP Class Manager

Sailors from all over the Americas are expected to join the Canadian fleet. Most boats from the increasingly active US fleet are within a day’s drive and the reliably keen Hawaiians are sure to make the trip. With charter boats available, the event is also accessible to Europeans, South Americans, Australasians and any other foilers who want to enjoy one-design foiling and the famous WASZP vibes at a world-class venue.

CORK has over 50 years of experience in delivering world-class regattas on one of the world’s best freshwater venues, with regular world championship titles decided on its waters. CORK runs the largest annual series of regattas in Canada and the largest annual freshwater series in the Americas. With the sole mandate of promoting sailing in Canada, the people at CORK strive for truly outstanding events and the 2023 WASZP Americas will be no exception.

“CORK / Sail Kingston is very much looking forward to hosting the 2023 WASZP Americas Championships and creating an exciting foiling competition. We have seen lots of growth in WASZP class in Canada and are thrilled to welcome sailors to the Kingston area.”. – Sarah Donaldson, Executive Director, CORK / Sail Kingston

Charlie Osmond Hi, I would love to charter for the first two days - Thur29th and Friday30th. I cannot make the rest of the competition unfortunately, but I am sure there are others who'd like a boat for the weekend. I own a WASZP but it is based in the Caribbean and I sadly cannot ship it. I will treat yours with the greatest care and attention. Contact
Aaron Tsuchitori Aloha everyone, I am a Waszp sailor from Hawaii interested in participating in this event. I am seeking a charter boat, I can bring my own sail. Contact
