Access Worlds 2010 It May be necessary to limit the number of UK entries news article
A message from Richard Smallwood (Chairman, Access Class Association (UK) and Chairman, Access Worlds 2010 Organising Committee):
To all UK Access Sailing Clubs, Organisations and individuals not attached to clubs:
Thank you to all clubs and individuals who responded to my request to let me know by 21 February about the likely participation in the 2010 Access World Championships at Rutland Sailing Club. We now have the responses from overseas Access Class Associations, as well as from the UK, and it is apparent that we may have to limit the number of UK entrants as the 303 two-person and 2.3 one-person classes, in particular, both have potentially large numbers from the UK.
Those intending to enter the 2010 World Championships are therefore advised that, if it is necessary to limit the number of UK entries, results in the 2009 TT series events and National Championships will be used as an indicator when making the selection of those UK sailors allowed to enter. It is therefore hoped that all those intending to participate in the World Championships will enter as many ACA(UK) events as possible in 2009 to both improve their racing skills and enhance their chances of selection.
I look forward to seeing big fleets at the TT meetings and the National Championships in 2009.
Chairman, ACA(UK) and
Access Worlds 2010 Organising Committee
