Tune in to live online coverage of the SAP 505 World Championship to find out which of the 173 entries will win this hard-fought contest….

With more than 170 teams entered from 16 nations, the SAP 505 World Championship is shaping up to be one of the toughest challenges on the international sailing circuit this year. The event starts on 13 August, and is being hosted by Kieler Yacht Club on the site of the 1972 Olympic Regatta.

The third biggest Worlds entry in the illustrious 60-year history of the class, the list is peppered with some of the greatest names in the sport. Jørgen Bojsen-Møller may have won an Olympic gold medal in the Flying Dutchman class at the Seoul Games in 1988, but a 505 world title has yet eluded him. Sailing with his brother Jacob, the Danish duo have twice finished runner-up, the last occasion being two years ago at La Rochelle when another Danish skipper – Jan Saugmann – teamed up with German crew Martin Görge to win.
