This time next week the Enterprise, Lark, Merlin Rocket, N12 and Scorpion fleets will start descending on Carnac YC in Brittany, France.

For most of these classes it will be the first time competing in Europe for a few years so we have put together some handy tips for the 103 boats entered so far, and their respective significant others who will have to struggle through a long weekend of good food, fine wine, beautiful sandy beaches and all manner of similarly stressful things:

Slightly important stuff

  • There are now maps of the club and trailer park online so you know where things are.
  • The club is open from Thursday onwards to drop boats off and they can be left there until the following weekend if need be.
  • There is still time for any late entries to join in – all the info you need is online at carnac2014.org.
More important stuff
  • Bring a copy of your insurance certificate with you – Carnac YC will need to see it.
  • SI's will be online next week. Remember to memorise or print yourself a copy as we won't be handing them out at the event – saving trees and all that.
  • Handicap race briefing is at 1pm Saturday 24th May
Very important stuff
  • Anyone caught doing a rain dance between now and the event will be disqualified immediately and banned from the bar.
  • SWAGs (including those that share more of a resemblance with Conchita) need to let us know ASAP if they are interested in doing any of the day activities shown online and we can arrange a discounted price.
  • Organising is hot work and dehydration is a serious risk, it is the responsibility of all competitors to ensure all event organisers are kept well supplied with fermented products from the bar at all times.
For anything else you can't find an answer to on the website please contact us using the form. See you all soon and don't forget the very important stuff!
