ÅF Offshore Race 2016 will be sailed clockwise

2015-11-03 - ÅF Offshore Race The Sail Racing season 2015 has almost ended. We have summarized the competitors impressions and our experiences from this year´s ÅF Offshore Race. We have noted that it was a good and appreciated regatta where the favourable weather was a positive, contributing factor. We can also see that both sailors and officials now feel at home in Skeppsholmen. This is enables a well-functioning cooperation and eases the mandatory obligations before the race can start.

As a response to the feedback received, we have decided to change the course for the next year. ÅF Offshore Race 2016 will be sailed clockwise around Gotland.

Another request was a proposal whereby crews without a boat of their own could rent a racing boat for ÅF Offshore Race 2016. KSSS now has information about different ‘rent a boat’ companies. Further information is available on the KSSS website.

We will present the Notice of Race for ÅF Offshore Race 2016 in November and shortly after open the online entry form.

We would like to take the opportunity to inform about the simplified description of ISAF Special Regulations that KSSS has made. Except text (so far in Swedish), the description also shows pictures with examples of safety equipment in ISAF Special Regulations. You will find these HERE.

We warmly welcome you to ÅF Offshore RACE 2016

Regatta Chairman
