Entrants will be able to officially use the facilities as of Friday 22nd June. However, Chris Knight (WPNSA event co-ordinator) is going to speak to others and try to extend this to Thursday 21st June.
The Pre-Worlds is arranged for 23rd -24th with the number of races suggested at 3 per day starting at 11:00. The final arrangements for this are open to discussion.
Measurement will also cover 23rd - 24th, but also include the whole of Monday 25th
The World Championships is arranged for 26th - 30th, again with the number of races suggested at 3 per day starting at 11:00. The final arrangements for this are open to discussion. There is a lay day scheduled but the day is to be decided.
We have a Jury sorted which is planed to be:
- Peter Scheuerl - chairman (GER)
- Paul Withers (GBR)
- Noel Allen (AUS)
- Joep Straus (BEL)
- Bill Handley (GBR)
The PRO will be David Campbell-James. David is one of the UK’s top race officers; he has been involved in all the Sail for Gold Olympic class events, and will be on the water during the Olympic sailing event too. He is very approachable and keen to make the sailing at a venue he knows very well, as fair as possible.
Class international measurer, Chris Henderson will be inspecting all boats. Inspection will be carried out in the venue hanger.
The venue will supply all the equipment needed on and off the water.
I've asked them to put together a budget based on 100 entrants and to include a reception, plus something like a BBQ on Wednesday and a gala dinner on Friday.
