The Yacht Racing Forum 2019 will take place on November 25 – 26 in Bilbao, Spain, and YJA members of the press are able to register for free entry to the show through our arrangement with the organisers.

This is a must attend event for sailing and yacht racing media representatives from all over the world, where the present and future of yacht racing will be debated by the sports’ key personalities. The best yacht racing photographers and TV / video producers will also be celebrated during the Forum, in front of the sports’ leading brands, events and venues. The two-day conference will be held alongside the Yacht Racing Design & Technology Symposium, dedicated to professional designers, builders and suppliers of racing yachts.
