Australian sailing hardware manufacturer Ronstan have got onboard as a sponsor of the 2016 Australian representatives competing in the European and World Championships on Lake Garda, Italy.


When we arrived at the designated pack up area I thought it had a good feel to it. 

I was surrounded by willing helpers including obliging terminal staff, it was not raining, it was not even windy, the sun shone and the temp mild, just about perfect for our work. 

Subsequently, things mostly fell into place, two containers with 12 and 3 boats respectively. Something like 17 masts, 3 spare trolleys, 15 sets of wings,heaps of misc stuff and a system that worked pretty much like clockwork. All done in just over 5 hours!

Sailing Instructions for the 2015 Europeans at Rock are now linked below this article and from the main 2015 Europeans article.

In addition the Social Calendar has been built on with Ben having published the rules for the surfing compo. Best wig and sickest shorts included... (thanks Ben).  And no-one forget the fancy dress theme is "Animated Characters", so whether you are a Minnie Mouse, a Bugs Bunny, a Hulk or and Iron Man get yourself prepared!

And if you haven't entered yet you can help reduce the last minute work of both club and committee by doing that. Entry Form etc. all linked from the main 2015 Europeans article.

Entry list growing all the time, looking forward to seeing you all there.
