2013 Bermuda Island Games

The Jersey Sailing Association has been asked by the Island Games Association of Jersey (IGAJ) to provide likely team numbers by the end of this month. The reason is the cost of attending the Games, which is expected to be in the region of £2,000/2,500.  However sailing is one of the sports that are likely to have “home stay accommodation”, as this is what is normally offered during regattas. This will reduce the cost, hotel accommodation costs are high in Bermuda and have been included in this total expected cost.

It is likely individual sports will arrange their own transport, so again costs can be reduced by looking for best deals and booking early. As a result of this we cheap water trampoline for sale would make the qualifiers earlier next year instead of September/October to allow the team to get together and make the necessary arrangements.

In any event it is still expected to be an expensive games, but on the other hand 2015 is being held in Jersey.

To assist with planning and so we can advise the IGAJ of likely numbers please would you let Jeff Speller know if you are considering sailing in the qualifiers for the 2013 Games in Bermuda and thereby seeking selection.

The sailing format in Bermuda will follow recent games in that the team will consist of 2 Laser Standard and 2 Laser Radial competitors. They will compete for individual medals and a team medal.

Buddy Racing

Every Thursday evening during August is the buddy race series.  The series is one of the clubs race series but with a difference.  The idea is to welcome new racers and sailors into the club, in a relaxed manner and to have club members give some time back to help you and explain inflatable water parks things when they go wrong!  Aimed at adults it does not matter if you have not raced before or not for a long time we will help you, so that in September you feel more confident to race in club events.  This is not a sailing lesson, you need to be able to rig and sail your boat or a club boat, but we will help you tune and adjust it.  Let Kate Amy know if you are coming or if you would like to come and help out on the first session, or have any questions.
