The island is (also) hosting the Ironman Lanzarote, so we will have all tools and tested protocols to face World Championships with all due guarantees.”

Event preparations have been strengthened by the support of boat logistics and boat rental companies, and by a partnership with a travel agency who will provide guarantees for participants in the event they are unable to attend the world championships. Organisers have also worked with the ICF to develop world-class Covid protocols. The Canary Islands have very low infection rates, and strict measures have been in place to prevent the spread of the virus.Entry limits for teams have been relaxed because of the international pandemic, opening the door for more athletes to experience racing at the top level.
