The International Six Metre class is a class of classic racing yachts. Sixes are a construction class, meaning that the boats are not identical but are all designed to meet specific measurement formula, in this case International rule.

“Six metre” in class name does not, somewhat confusingly, refer to length of the boat, but product of the formula. 6mR boats are, on average, 10 –11 metres long.

Approximately 50 teams are expected to attend the 2022 Xacobeo 6mR Worlds in Sanxenxo, Spain. This will be the first time a 6mR world championship is held in Spain.
