Cercle Nautique de Loctudy | 05/08/2014 - 09/08/2014

Coming soon...

Welcome

 

 

We have booked Cercle Nautique de Loctudy for the 2014 RS500 World Championships.   See http://www.cnloctudy.com/

Racing will be 5 days from Tuesday 5 - Saturday 9 August.

Loctudy is in western Brittany and is quite breathtaking.  Wonderful sea sailing, launching off a sandy beach.  It's a small club in a small town, and the atmosphere is not unlike Gottskar.   There is free camping for tents and campervans behind the club, and one small hotel in town.    There are 2 holiday camps with chalets within 5km of the club, and gites and private houses for rent in town.

The club will provide catering and socials, including a Petanque and Breton Games challenge to the locals!


The entry fee is £190 or €228/boat, which will include the socials including 2 evening meals at the club.  There is a £20/boat reduction for youth sailors.   Entry is open now on this website.

 
There are 5 RS500s available to charter from RS Sailing at just £250/€300 each.  If you want to book one, you can do this with your entry.   THESE ARE ALL NOW BOOKED.
 
There will be pre-Worlds Coaching available at the venue on 4 August.  This needs to be pre-booked, which can be done with your entry.
 
As part of the Volvo Car UK continued support of the RS Sailing Association, they are giving you the opportunity to ‘Win a car for your RS Sailing event’. Your Volvo would be delivered and collected from your choice of address, complete with a tow bar and full tank of fuel, to help transport you and your boat to your event in comfort and style. For 2014, Volvo have extended this offer to cover some of the European events.   To enter, go to https://apps.facebook.com/winacarrs/ and select the event you are competing in.  
 
MORE SOCIAL!   The club is offering competitors free sailings on board an ocean crossing trimaran and on a brand new Nacra catamaran with foils.
Vincent Riou, winner of Vendee Around the Globe will entertain us with a talk on one evening.
