The International Shark Class Association (ISCA) Is the governing body of the Shark one-design keelboat with active National Associations in Canada, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Regular regattas are held on the Great Lakes and on the large lakes in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, culminating with the World Championship which alternates to Europe every third year. For information on local regattas near you, please go to your National Association website.
The purpose of ISCA is to promote and further the interest of the Shark Class throughout the world by:
a) maintaining the one-design character of the SHARK 24,
b) coordinating and managing the affairs and rules of the Class,
c) making recommendations on the control of the licensed builders,
d) encouraging and coordinating both national and international competition and cruising in the Class, and
e) providing relevant information to members of the Class associations.
