The History of Sailing in FISU 

Match Racing entered the programme of the FISU World University Championships in 2002 with a first edition organised in the Presqu’île of Quiberon, France. Until its 4th edition held in Gdansk (POL), the World University Match Racing Championship remained a mixed competition. Since its 5th edition organised in Gazy (GRE) in 2010, the competition has included both a men’s and a women’s competition, increasing the level of participation. With 62 athletes representing 9 countries, the number of participating athletes almost reached the record set in 2004 in Rimini (ITA) and established a record of participation for women. These records were then broken in 2012 (Nice-FRA) and 2014 (Ledro-ITA).
