Another year is soon to pass giving new prospects for us in 2018. It seems appropriate to take stock of where we are currently and to remember the good things in the last twelve months.
The highlight of this year must be the excellent Worlds in Sneek worked for by the enthusiastic Dutch team to give us a memorable week’s sailing with all wind and water conditions on offer including the latest ever evening Worlds race. Well done to all involved and to the sailors especially the worthy new World Champion. At the same time none of that week would have been so well handled had we not had the enthusiasm and skill of the race officer, Beer van Arem, and everyone who knew him were shocked to hear of his untimely death. A great loss for sailing and our class.
Dags att anmäla sig till NM i Gamla Karleby, Finland, samtidigt som det är NM är regattan också en hyllning till Imma. Vore trevligt om så många svenskar som gillar 2.4mR kunde hedra Imma med sitt deltagande på den regattan länk till anmälan nedan.
Hittade lite information från vår nya ordförande i internationella 2.4a förbundet på Facebook.
Fellow 2.4 sailors
The 2017 Worlds at Sneek in the Netherlands is a week behind us now. Great memories of the championship both on and off the water remain and we should make note and thank the Dutch NCA and the Royal Yacht Club Sneek for all their hard work before and during the week to give us a wonderful time both with very professionally run racing but an equally good social program. Conditions were very testing for the sailors and the race committee with conditions varying between extreme winds and difficult seas on the first day, races on one day finishing at around 2200 hours, and calm conditions on the final day precluding racing. The final split of sailors into a gold and silver fleet, was to some extent affected by the first days conditions, but the quality of racing in both fleets was of a very high standard and the class should be very proud of this level of competition. No doubt a review of the week by the elected committees will ensure a high standard is maintained at future events.
