One of the great unknown when organizing a championship is just many boats will turn up...fleet sizes at the nationals have been growing strongly in recent years. A big fleet, a great buzz, lots of like- minded sailors, friends and families. Put that together with our great social program and a great place for a holiday, it should definately be an event not to be missed.
Assuming the wind behaves; we will be aiming for afternoon racing; with races sailed back-to-back in a variety of conditions. We will however ensure we have the flexibility to alter the format or timing if the winds don't behave. (Would that ever happen at a sailing championship?)
We're going all out to make this as fun a regatta off the water as on it. So it might be best not to plan too many quiet nights in front of the TV.
It's looking as though we are going to have some international entries, particularly from Europe so the regatta should see a good attendance.
