2015 Radio Control Laser Championship of Nations
The 2015 Radio Controlled Laser Yacht Championship in the Netherlands promises to be a great event and we are hoping many Australian Radio Controlled Laser Yacht sailors can participate in the regatta. Australia had two participants in the 2013 Radio Controlled Laser Yacht Championship of Nations held in Southport in the UK and they were well placed.
The Championship will be held on 22, 23, and 24 May, 2015 at Ouderkerkerk aan de Amstel. The location is about 25 minutes by public transport to the center of Amsterdam. It boasts many fine restaurants and historic areas. There are some good flight packages available from Australia to Amsterdam at present. Holland is a great place for a holiday with easy public transport and lots of accommodation options. Having sailed there a number of times, the locations for sailing Radio Controlled yachts are beautiful and the locals very hospitable.
Taco Faber and his team will be welcoming hosts and a large representation from UK and European countries will be sure to attend, making for some tough sailing competition.
Because of Australian support at the 2013 Radio Controlled Laser Yacht Championship of Nations and the success of the annual Radio Control Laser National Championships, the 2017 Radio Controlled Laser Yacht Championship of Nations is scheduled to come to Australia. That means it is even more important for Australia to be represented at the 2015 Radio Controlled Laser Yacht Championship of Nations.
More information will be posted as it becomes available and there will be assistance available for organising travel and accommodation.
