Hyères’s 53rd Semaine Olympique Française will take place from April 17 to 24, 2021. The last big sailing meet before the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the SOF in the south of France will bring together the 10 classes competing in Japan in August 2021, as well as the 4 new disciplines that will be competing on the waters of Marseille at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. In addition, the offshore race, which the IOC will decide on May 31whether to include in the Olympics, will also be contested. Thus, this edition of the SOF promises an unprecedented level of competition, especially as it will be an opportunity for the European laserists to clinch the final remaining places for Tokyo, while the Finn event will also double as their 2021 European Championship.
