F18 Americas: 1st Continental Championship. Oct 19-26, 2013, Sarasota, Florida.

Last year within some conversations with the US class reps I proposed to have an American Continental event to join forces between the North well established fleets and the fast growing Arg fleet.  We held the first South Americans in 2011 along our new hardcore fanatics in Chile and Uruguay, now these two countries have their own local classes. 

And due to the 2012 Long Beach Worlds success, where I think North/South America filled almost 90 of the 120 slots the idea took form for the US members and John Casey along the US F18 Class and the Sarasota Sailing Squadron have  put together this Continental event, the first Americas F18 Championship is now a reality.

Below preliminary Schedule by the organizers, more info to come, official web facebook.com/2013F18AmericasChampionship.

"This is a basic schedule at this point so you can start planning - more specific details to follow very soon.
Container delivery can be coordinated at any point between now and the regatta. Just need to contact Craig Bridges, the manager at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron to make this happen. Craig can be reached at 941-388-2355.
