2018 Class Championship venue change.
As previously published in the 2017 AGM we are booked to hold the 2018 class championships in Royal Torbay Yacht Club, Torquay.
Discussion as a class during our recent visit to HISC highlighted that to take advantage of the opportunity to grow our class in both S. coast (HISC) and in SE coast, Essex we must ensure we hold championships in these regions to grow our presence.
The leadership team felt that waiting until 2021 for Essex to hold a championship reduced our opportunity to grow in this region. Last week we received an excellent proposal to host the 2018 Champs from West Mersea Yacht Club.
This is an excellent deep water venue with an international race team in a local holiday area. Please see attached flyer. We are delighted to accept this offer.
Please therefore be advised that the 2018 championships will be hosted at WMYC from 15-20th July 2018.
Let’s build on the success of Hayling 2017 by supporting in greater numbers this new venue in an important growth region for the class.
