The deadline for applying for selection to the European Championship and Jr. European Championship is fast approaching – and I have not received any applications to be considered for selection to the either team.
Unlike the “whoever wanted to go” process for the World’s in Argentina due to the limited interest in attending this event – there is a specific selection process based upon your performance in past events, and you must apply to the US I-420 Class Association to be considered for the team.
FYI, although you can get this information off the International 420 Website (www.420sailing.org) or connect to the information through the US I-420 Class Association Website (www.usi420.org) – here are the following dates for the events:
European Championship - Tavira, Portugal – July 20-29, 2011
Junior European Championship – Nieuwpoort, Belgium – August 7-15, 2011
I-420 Charters are being made available through Sailing Sport Center (Arthur) as well directly from Blue-Blue – I have the preliminary information. It would be helpful to get your applications as soon as possible to we can get preliminary lodging commitments and charters for coach boats and I-420’s.
Applications MUST BE RECEIVED AT THE US I-420 CLASS OFFICE NO LATER THAN MARCH 31, 2011.
You cannot make application directly for the event - you must be selected by the US I-420 Class Association and final application to the event MUST be submitted by the Class President or other member of the Class Executive Committee.
