The Israel Sailing Association (ISA) informed World Sailing of its decision to withdraw from holding the event due to insufficient funding. The original plan of ISA was to host the event in Akko, Israel in July 2017.
World Sailing set a deadline for MNAs to submit bids on Monday Jan 16 with bid evaluations to take place Jan 17-18. Interested MNAs can contact the Executive Officer in World Sailing for the bid guidelines.
