After the class survey and some long discussion amongst the World Council I have the pleaure to announce that the class has chosen Centre Nautique De Plerin to host the 2013 World Championships. The event will take the form of a 3 day Europeans/Lay Day/5 Day World Championships over the 11th to 19th July 2013.

More details will follow over the coming weeks and months as we work to make this an event to remember.

This was a close decision with a lot of support for the Italian options. On the back of this we have secured in principle with Circlolo Velo Torbole, Garda for the Summer 2016 World Championships. 

We look forward to seeing if we can break the 50 boat mark in Plerin :)  Any questions and discussions please use the dedicated 2013 Worlds Message Board.

The champions and the nearly-championsEditor's Note: Day 1 didn't happen due to strong wind- the race officer took the readings and confirmed it was (well!) above the class rule limits. Crazy Boules happened, as well as much "socialising". The day 2 report was written by Mr Davis who may have been increasingly "tired and emotional" and received "help" from many others.

 

 

 

Day 2 at the B14 Europeans dawned with little expectation of sailing due to a forecast for an offshore force 6-7. However after Friday's lack of racing the RO was keen to get a race in, so the fleet launched into borderline conditions with the slight (misplaced) reassurance of a large wind shadow from the cliffs in the offshore breeze.

After much deliberation and a public vote, the dates for the 2012 European championships have been decided.28087

Racing will be held from Friday 24th to Monday 27th August 2012 at Le Centre Nautique de Plérin, Brittany, France, with measurement and practice on Thursday 23rd. The event is being put together by Sebastian Le Cam, after he kindly "volunteered" to organise it at the UK nationals, and this is a home event for Sophie and him.

 

More information is available in this pack (note that the schedule will be updated in line with the above dates) to help you start choosing your accomodation. Look to the forum for more and to arrange double stackers etc.

We've had two fantastic events in Brittany in the last couple of years, this is sure to be a third one. See you there!
