Australian F16 Nationals 2011


Recommended Posts

Yet to be officially confirmed, but the next Formula 16 nationals is likely to be held at Gosford Sailing Club NSW. The dates will be 21,22,23 and 24 of January. The plan is to have a combined nationals regatta held with the Australian F18 association. This will be a great opportunity that will help to strengthen both classes for the future.

The First day of the regatta will be a marathon. Back to back Championship racing is planned for the next 3 days.

Expect to see a notice of race and entry form out by the end of July.

Regards,

Pim

Hi to all,

Just advising dates are confirmed and I will be completing a draft NOR within the next week.

F18 and F16 fleets will be split into 2 courses using the same start and finish line so should be fun for all. Look forward to seeing you all on the water.

Regards
