2018 Worlds is Coming to Brisbane
The Brisbane fleet bid for the 2108 Etchells Worlds has been successful, the efforts of our hardworking worlds steering committee paid off last week with confirmation being received at the worlds venue in Rhode Island.
Congratulations to the steering committee chairman David Irvine for his drive and enthusiasm in bring the bid proposal together and to all of the supporters who have assisted along the way. Of course this was the easy part, and although we are four years out the detailed planning for a great regatta will commence in earnest. We are targeting a 90 boat fleet with competitors expected from Europe, USA, Canada, NZ and Hong Kong.
Our first task will be raising sponsors for the event should you have an interest in becoming involved please drop us a line.
We expect plenty of interest locally and see the way forward for further fleet growth as a result, if you have been sitting on the fence now is the time to get off it and get an Etchells.
