The Youth World Sailing Championships were first held in 1971 in Ängelholm, Sweden. At the time, 16 countries competed for the titles in two-person dinghy and flipper.
In the years that followed, more and more classes were added to bring together all the young talents around the world in one central place. This place served not only to compete against each other, but also for the social cohesion of all the talents. Therefore, social activities were also organised during the events to create friendships for life.
The host of the 2022 Allianz Youth Sailing World Championships is The Hague.
