During the week of August 22-29, 2014 National Yacht Club will host the Shark World Championships. This Championship is the high point of the Shark Class Regatta schedule and has been competed for since 1966. It is scheduled two years running in North America and one in Europe. In addition to entries from Canadian Yacht clubs from Windsor to Montreal and around the Golden Horseshoe, this regatta should attract entries from the USA, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Hungary. It is anticipated that as many as 70 boats will compete in this prestigious event, and it is planned to make this the biggest and best Worlds ever. How can NYC members contribute to the success of this event?
- Obviously an event of the magnitude cannot be hosted without the assistance of a substantial pool of volunteers. We are looking for members who are able to volunteer some time to help in the planning and execution of this event
- In order to accommodate some of our European competitors, as well as the international judges required for this event, we hope to find members who are willing to provide billets.
- In order to accommodate some of the out of town competitors we hope to find members who are willing make their boats available for crews to sleep on.
- If you are able to help with any of the above items, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
