Circolo Vela Arco, Lake Garda, is to be the venue for the 2022 European Championships. Being held from 12th to 16th September 2022, this will be a joint co-operation between the ITA and GER Class Associations.
Due to venue restrictions, this will be a restricted event limited to 100 boats, with a split between Open and Classics fleets to be decided later. This is a very popular venue and associations may need to allocate places based on national rankings this time
You all know the place, but here as a few views of a few experts -
To maintain its World Sailing designation, World Sailing requires that all A Class Catamarans constructed after 1/1/2010 pay a fee to World Sailing and this is evidenced by affixing a World Sailing plaque to the stern of one hull in terms of class rule A.7. The hull builder, either professional or amateur is responsible for this payment and affixing of plaque. Should plaque be missing or destroyed a replacement plaque must be affixed and is available from World Sailing.
The registrations for both the 2022 Worlds, 8-15th April 22, together with the Admiral's Cup warm up event, 2-6th April 22, is now open and taking bookings. All the information is on the Worlds portal, including the NORs for both events. We already have 40+ entries to date, so get your name down and start planning your campaign.
At long last, and after much work on Graeme Harbour's Measuring side, and Paul Larsen's Technical Committee side, we finally have a full set of 'A' Class rules in one official World Sailing document. In addition, there is now a revised set of Measurers Guidelines that will now cover and record such things as foil size/position for Classic as well as Open division boats.
