Hosting Yacht Club - Lega Navale Italiana

Pre-Worlds at the same venue - September 20-22.

Extract from the Minutes of the AGM 2017:

"There was a discussion about the Worlds 2019 in Travemünde, GER. Two major things: 1) We have asked to give us standalone event, but we were still offered to be part of the Travemünde Week; 2) Class wants to have the location where everybody wants to go. The motion was submitted to add a second location to the possible venues:  Cagliari, ITA. Federico Michetti presented Melges Europe’s and Melges 24 Italian Class idea and support to the event as they have a “golden bridge” today to Cagliari organising there several events and was highlighting very good connections with the local municipalities and ferry companies for the logistics. Containers can be shipped directly to the Cagliari, 5 flights from Milan daily – easy to reach. The place will get a huge boost in coming years as also AC’s Luna Rossa team’s headquarter will be in Cagliari. October would be the best time, not crowded and there are fewer regattas. But at the end of August would be great as well - 2nd or 3rd week of September, having Italian Championships before. 
A vote was called and AGM accepted the proposal of changing the location of the Worlds 2019 to Cagliari: 28 for YES/11 for NO. "
