Europeans and Worlds in Puerto Sherry, Cádiz. 5 (11)

Dear FD Class colleagues worldwide,

We are pleased to inform you that the 2024 European Championship and the 2025 World Championship will be hosted in Puerto Sherry, in the Bay of Cádiz.

The scheduled dates for the European Championship are from October 20 to October 27, 2024, while the exact dates for the World Championship in March 2025 are yet to be determined.

In preparation for the period between October 2024 and March 2025, we are organizing a race calendar to take advantage of the boats staying in Puerto Sherry. This calendar will include:

1. European Championship from October 20 to October 27, 2024.
2. An International League consisting of races in the months of November and December 2024, as well as January and February 2025. The February 2025 race will coincide with the Eurocup.
3. World Championship in March 2025.

The exact dates for the International League and Eurocup will be confirmed this December, and specific dates for the February 2024 World Championship will be announced shortly.

Additionally, we are in negotiations with relevant authorities, including the Regional Government of Andalusia, the Provincial Government of Cádiz, and the City Councils of Cádiz and Puerto de Santa Maria. The aim of these negotiations is to secure financial support to assist in the transportation of boats from around the world to Puerto Sherry, with the goal of attracting the participation of a greater number of boats.

It is worth noting that the pleasant temperatures in Cádiz during those months, coupled with the excellent facilities of Puerto Sherry in terms of boat space, accommodation, dining, entertainment, etc., make this event a secure choice for the realization of the mentioned competitions.

We will continue to keep you informed as new developments arise. However, if you have any inquiries, please feel free to contact the Class Secretary in Spain, Enrique Egea, at egeaesp66@gmail.com, who will be happy to assist you.

Thank you in advance for your attention and cooperation.

Sincerely,

Pepe Ruiz
ESP 99

STATUSREPORT CONTAINERS WORLDS 4.8 (4)

As we are getting closer to the Worlds in St.Petersburg Florida I would like to give a little update.
On the 19 th of February 2023 we published the announcement of finally organizing the Worlds in Florida. In that announcement IFDCO offered € 400 to every boat going to the Worlds by container as the costs seemed to become very high.
For those who are in doubt to go to the Worlds and might not know this I just want to remind you of this. Maybe it helps you to make a decision to go and join the competition.
Frank Nooijen, who we cannot thank enough for all his incredible work in organizing the container transport again and again in such an excellent way and such low rates, asked me update you.
At the moment there are 27 boats in 5 containers from Europe.
So there are 3 spots left that can be filled up easily.
I case there are more boats a 6th container could be organized.
The deadline for entering would be 31st of december.
You can reach Frank at f.nooijen@obm.nl

Regards

Peter van Koppen
President IFDCO
