European Class News   Merry Christmas and a happy New Year 2012 from your European Secretary

Posted By on Saturday, December 24, 2011

I want to thank all of you for a wonderful season 2011. We had 23 European participants in all four Grand Prix races and a besides a numerous strong German fleet a reinforced british fleet that will show up in 2012 even stronger.
In 2011 we visited the Hungarian fleet for the first time in History and are happy to return in 2012. The Denish team around Flemming and Soeren organised the Mark Foy Trophy in Sonderborg, the 18 ft Skiff Class' Premium Event. In Germany we had a new short race format and thousends of visitors watched the spectacle inside the harbour. All those races could be also watched on EuroSport thanks to Soeren. Also the Suisse fleet gave a sign of life and at the Suisse Grand Prix we had three new teams on the tour. There we also tried the new format for 2012, the handcapsystem with two windward buoys, that andvantages Rookie-,Pinhead- and Old-Boat-Teams. So hopefully we will have closer racing and more action for sailors and spectators.
In 2012 we will have 5 races:
10th-13th of May, Hungary, Balatonföldvar
2nd-9th of June, Italy, Torbole, the Europeans
29th of June until 5th of July, Istanbul, Turkey (planned)
21st-24th of July Germany, Travemuende
28th-30th oh September, Plymouth, UK

Hope to meet a lot of you there

always good winds and a lot of fun
Keep on flying, 18s

Your Secretary Norbert
