The 2017 Worlds are being held at Pwllheli Sailing Club in Wales, from 19th to 25th August. Pwllheli SC is one of the UKs major championship venues.
In case you are wondering, very roughly its pronounced puth-HEL-ee, and yes, you will hear Welsh spoken in local pubs and shops, but they all speak english too. It may be only 250 miles from London, but you will believe you're in a different country if you haven't been to West Wales before. I haven't sailed at Pwllheli myself, but I've competed at a championship a few miles down the coast in Cardigan Bay, and that was memorable for being paced down the reaches by dolphins, who will certainly be able to keep up with Canoes if they so wish.
