2011.f18worlds.com When people ask me about the popularity of the F18 class abroad, I just tell them "The F18 gathers 180 boats per championship" , I think not even Lasers, 29ers or Stars can match that numbers. Right now the F18 is leading the sail racing scene.

The 2011 edition will be held at Lake Balaton, Hungary. and it will be hosted by the Blatonfured Yacht Club (BYC) . F18 World Council member and official int class webmaster Sandor Roka, aka Sanyi, will be leading the organization 2011.f18worlds.com :

"Despite the fact that today there is still a layer of ice covering beautiful Lake Balaton, the Organising Committee of the 2011 F18 Worlds are already hard at work to ensure a fantastic event for sailors and F18 fans alike.

The date of the1st - 9 July 2011 has been set, so don’t forget to mark this in your diaries and let your boss know that you shall not be in the office for the first half of July, at the very least! Needless to say, loved ones and supporters will be here with you as the 2011 World Championships will provide a packed and varied social calendar as well as some great racing.

During the Worlds, the boats shall be parked inside the Balaton Tourist Camping and Bungalows Füred, so you can book your bungalow or campsite just a short distance from your boat. If you would prefer a hotel, there are several located within a short walking distance from the Campsite. Please note that there are a limited number of bungalows available and I would advise early booking as there is expected to be a high demand for these. As July is peak season for the area, early booking is also strongly recommended for hotel accommodation.

Stay tuned, the ice on the lake will be melting soon, and there will be more information published here regularly!"
