Formula 16 Worlds 2014 @Newport

Sent by Thomas Koening: Formula 16 Worlds 2014: Sailing festival in Newport/ Rhode Island.
"Sailing Newport will host the 2014 Worlds of the International Formula 16 Class Association. From June, 24th until Friday, 27th the class of the light and fast beach catamarans will race at one of the most exposed venues in sailing. Although being a multi-generation catamaran, the Formula 16 boats have been the nursery of many crews sailing the Olympic Nacra 17 today.

After Henri Demesmaeker was crowned the youngest World Champion ever apart from the optimist dinghy in Travemuende last year, let’s take a thorough look on young hotshots showing up in Newport, dropping their calling card for future F18 or Nacra 17 racing. Registration is open for double-handed and singlehanded crews. Charter boats will be available. "
