NEWS UPDATE SAILING: NAT WEST ISLAND GAMES

A big thank you to all those who have helped so far prepare for the Island Games. Still much to do….

All 52 new  sails have had  numbers, sponsors  and stickers carefully  applied  ready for the    competition.

Constable Pallot and the team at the Parish Hall  of St Brelade were able to offer the use of  their hall: For two days the hall took on the role of a sail loft. A team of volunteers  inflatable boxing ring for sale worked solidly and the task was achieved.

All  the 26 new lasers ( Each with standard and radial rig) have been unpacked and moved to the Fort

The event will be a major logistical exercise with start boats, rescue boats, onshore support and transport to and from the Fort all being provided.

Help is needed from 2pm on  Sat 20th June at St Aubins Fort to finally  assemble boats and make the site a welcoming place. Just turn up even if just to support and see the site!

The sailing venue at St Aubin’s Fort is taking shape.  Twenty six brand new laser dinghies await the arrival of the competing sailors. All that is needed now is fair winds!

The sailing event will take place in St Aubin’s Bay from Sun 28th June to Thurs 2nd July with results and coverage streamed onto screens onshore.
