Sailors and Parents:
If you are receiving this e-mail, then, as sailors, you have been chosen to represent the United States at the I-420 World Championship Regatta in Travemunde, Germany as a member of Team USA, this July.
The following teams are being offered positions on Team USA for the 2014 WC:
NOTE: A SERIES OF E-MAIL COMMUNICATIONS WILL FOLLOW IN THE COMING WEEKS AND YOU MUST RESPOND IN A TIMELY FASHION.
HERE ARE THE FIRST ITEMS TO RESPOND TO.
#1 The address/e-mail/phone numbers below are where all communication need to come - PERIOD
No other address is to be used for any reason.
#2 Check your e-mail address for the following:
Most of you have bad handwriting like me and reading the e-mail addresses off the applications was tough
Check to see that you, your parents and your teammates received this e-mail and get me any correction or addditions
Those sailors with school e-mail addresses need to get another e-address to use. Your school servers block communications with attachments and multiple recipients and we MUST HAVE a workable address for you (best is g-mail);
We MUST HAVE at least one working parental e-mail address – no exceptions
#3 Each Team MUST send me the sail number they are going to use at the WC event in Germany
#4 Each Team has 7 days to accept this invitation and then they must send in a non-refundable deposit of $2,000.00 per sailor by May 10
#5 All payments are to be made payable to the US I-420 Class – NO EXCEPTIONS
#6 A preliminary Budget will follow in approximately 10 days and updated regularly until the final budget is issued
#7 No team will be allowed to sail that has an open balance prior to the start of the regatta
#8 Send only requested items to the Class office as they are requested
#9 The Class Office will arrange, lodging, coaches, coach boats, team vans, team uniforms and will assist with racing boat charters
#10 If you have questions, send them by e-mail – do not swamp the office with calls.
That’s’ it for now. Pay attention to this list and get the actions items done immediately – especially communications links. We are definitely missing a number of e-mail addresses and we have too many school e-mail addresses.
Congratulations to you all.
