Sydney Worlds

Post by Colin Smith » Thu Nov 27, 2008 5:17 pm

Two quick messages re the Sydney Worlds:
1) It is possible we may need for traffic avoidance reasons to run windward/leeward courses (sausages) rather than the traditional combination of sausages and triangles - that is, there MAY not be the usual spinnaker reaches. The world council discussed this at the meeting in Germany and it was agreed this would be OK for this event, if needed. Although to be clear, it's still only a possibility, not a final decision, and may only finally get decided at the time, or race-by-race.
2) Given it'll be peak Aussie holiday season, you are advised to book accommodation, travel, etc, good and early!
Cheers

Can we get these dates published asap, as we need to think about booking flights etc.? Also a google search reveals the original proposal which ends on the 9th Jan and hence may confuse people, especially as Monday is an odd day to finish.
