Its great to see Australians Amac, Scott Babbage, Rob Gough (Tasmania) and Phil Stevenson already entered. We have heard rumours that others are going to be making the journey from down under and we are dead chuffed that they are coming.
Where is the USA? Surely Bora Gulari will want to come and defend his title? I am sure the Aussies will want it back off him and there are few UK & European sailors who will have their eyes on the prize too. I am sure he will get to it after he is back from the Melges Worlds in Geelong, Australia.
Last night we broke the 80 entries barrier, 5 days after we opened the entry. The enthusiasm for this event is palpable. We are going to do our best to give everyone the best sailing event ever. No matter whether you are in the top 10 or having great racing in the Silver fleet, we will do our best for you. Yes, we are here to determine a World champion but we also want to provide good racing no matter where you are in the fleet. Right to the end of the championship. Over the coming months we will be revealing how we are going to achieve this.
