Yesterday we received a letter from Compagnia della Vela Grosseto informing the IF18CA that regrettably they are no longer able to organize the 2019 F18 Worlds. This means that the 2019 F18 Worlds will not take place in Marina de Grosseto.
Our friends of the Italian National Class Association are currently working closely with the Italian Sailing Federation to move the event to an already identified alternative venue in Tuscany so that changes for the organization of container transportation for the event will be minimal.
Our plan is to confirm the new venue to sailors before October.
We are very sorry for the enthusiastic people of Compagnia della Vela Grosseto who had to make this tough decision, but we are also confident that with all the support that we have in Italy we will be able to find an alternative venue which will offer us once more a great Worlds event.
On behalf of IF18CA Executive Committee,
Ad Noordzij, Secretary General
