The 2022 ILCA 4 Youth World Championship will be held in Vilamoura, PORTUGAL at the Capable Planet Clube Nautico.
This is a restricted entry allocated championship. Sailors wishing to enter must first complete an application form, accessible through the menu above.

On 1 March 2022, World Sailing published the following recommendations in reaction to the situation in Ukraine: https://www.sailing.org/2022/03/01/world-sailing-statement-6/. To help preserve the integrity and safety of the event, entries shall be open to competitors of all nationalities, but not to competitors holding only Russian or Belarussian nationality.
It is the intention and goal of the organizing authority to hold this event as scheduled. As everyone can recognize, the COVID-19 pandemic is ongoing and many travel restrictions have been in place for some time. Although the organizers are hopeful for improvements, the situation remains dynamic and it is not clear what changes in circumstances will occur as we move forward. The situation is being regularly monitored and any decisions that are made affecting the schedule of the event will be communicated with applicants as soon as possible after being made.
Event organizers cannot provide guarantees against potential travel restrictions for any specific individuals at any time. As we move through the application and entry process, it is up to each potential competitor to evaluate his or her personal situation and make logistical and financial decisions about their ability to participate and the possible risks involved.
Specified in the Notice of Race: After entry applications are opened and until the start of the event the organizing authority will monitor the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic or other potential disruptions to the event and, having regard for the health and safety of all participants as well as any government travel restrictions or government mandated conditions on gatherings that affect participation in or conduct of the event, may at its sole discretion:
- Postpone or cancel the event,
- Change the status of the event from a World Championship to an International Regatta,
- Alter the maximum number of entries,
- Reduce a country’s allocated number of places,
- Make any other decision deemed necessary in the circumstances.
A limited number of charter boats will be available for this event. The charter boats will be supplied on a launching trolley as a hull with self-bailer, padded hiking strap, spars (composite mast top section, appropriate bottom section and a boom), centreboard and rudder in carry bag, mainsheet side cleats, control line deck block fitting with blocks and control line deck cleat fitting with cleats.
