We had a very good Excomm meeting at Hartley Laminates office in Derby on the 17 October.
I am pleased to report that we have secured very generous sponsorship for the Worlds from Richard and Mark which we will be using to subsidise the cost of entering the event. Our aim is to maximise the numbers attending the event and make it as welcoming as possible for all levels of sailor.
We have a special early bird discount for entries received before Monday 8th March (after the dinghy show). We will also have discounts for bronze fleet entries (competitors who have never competed in an area, national or international championship event – we will be looking out for ‘ringers’) and a special ‘enter three boats, one boat goes free’ deal for group entries from clubs.
Michael, Quentin and I are finalising details of the NoR. I hope to publish this on the web next weekend.
