The newest video from the very talented young videographer, who already made some promotional videos for the Flying Dutchman class, is now online. It was filmed during the 2019 german championship in Diessen.
Youth Grant 2018
We on the General Committee recognise just how important it is for the Classes future to encourage young people to start sailing the FD and so we must do everything we can to support them, especially in attending our major championships, where the cost of entry, travel and accommodation often can be prohibitively expensive. We re-launched the Youth Grant scheme for the World Championships in Steinhude, and a number of young teams to advantage of the money being offered. For 2017 we have increased the Grant to 75€ for those coming from Europe and 150€ for those attending from outside mainland Europe. We therefore want to remind all those under the age of 25 that they can apply to IFDCO for a Youth Grant. The criteria for Grant Applications for the World Championships in Scarlino are as follows:
- Both Helmsmen & Crews can apply for a grant
- Be under 25 years of age on the 23rd July 2018 (Published date for 1st Race)
- Be a current Member of IFDCO
- All recipients of a grant agree to write a short article for the International Bulletin and/or the website
- Complete the attached application form and e-mail it to Peter Van Koppen the IFDCO Treasurer email@example.com at least 14 days prior to the event.
Please spread the word about these grants and I look forward to see as many of you as possible in Medemblik in July.
The 2018 season is coming closer and closer! We already received the dates of many international Regattas.
