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 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.
