Cancellation of the 2024 European Championships in Italy

Dear RG65 Sailors

Today I must regrettably inform you that the planned 2024 European Championships on Lake Idro in Italy are cancelled.

The team in Italy have put a lot of effort into the planning but have unfortunately been unable to secure some important commitments from other stakeholders.

The ICA would like to thank Virginio Boglietti and his team for all their efforts. We hope that in the future we can arrange an event at this fantastic location.

 

Your ICA committee will look for possible alternative locations in the hope that we can still organise and event in 2024.  Please feel free to let us know if you may be interested in arranging an event in your country.

Sincerely

Wayne Stobbs (ICA Chair)

Change of date for the Italian Cup in 2023

Dear RG65 community

We have received the following message from the organisers of the 2023 Italian Cup

I am sorry to have to inform you that the RG65 Italian Cup will not be held at the end of March due to logistical problems due to the closure of our reference campsite. We are therefore obliged to give the new dates which will be 20-21-22 May 2023.

This is the reference link to view the campsite:

It is better to book in advance, both pitches for campers and bungalows (there is a lot of demand….)

We will soon issue the Notice of Race for the RG65 Italian Cup

 

Please keep track of all National and International events that we are aware of on the Events page

International Events

Now that we have a suitable set of class rules, an established World Council and a committed ICA Committee we feel that we should start to work towards organising some international event.

As these events need to be announced at least 1 year in advance the likely dates for any Global and Regional Championships will probably be sometime in 2024 (but we are¬† happy to work on an earlier date if we believe it is achievable) but the first step it to invite all of the ICA nations to come forward with an “Expression of Interest” if they would like to host such an event.

We have today asked the World Council members to contact us if they would like to host such and event and, to support that, we ask you all to talk to your World Council member if you or your Club would like to organise and host one of these championship events.

We look forward to hearing from you.
