The NOR and registration form are online.

The organization recommends to book accommodation early as this is a busy period in a touristy area.

Not my ball or responsibility even if I care enough to point out issues.


Good luck with the event.

Typo due to a cut and paste, already signaled, it's going to be fixed soon. And yes, there is a French F16 Assoc.

A US competitor could use a coastguard approved flotation device if he wants to. That's all this means. The US MNA requires USCG approved floatation devices.

You can have a mobile phone, you just can't use it while racing. Fairly common restriction, I've seen this language used in the UK, France and Italy.

If you don't have insurance up to such an amount you can get a french sailing federation temporary sailing license that will cover your liability up to that amount. Any sailing club in france can sell you that for relatively cheap. My UK insurance cover me up to 2M so I'm surprised by the low value of your liability.

We had to have A$10m for the Moth Worlds, but usually the local organisers are able to assist with overseas entries to ensure that have the requisite insurance needed. Very common.

Wow you guys carry a million in insurance? That is incredible. I feel like I am extreme and I think mine here in the US is only about 300,000. Why are you all required to carry so much insurance?

I carry 2M in insurance, aka $3.25M. One order of magnitude more than you.

The reason why it is so high is that we are, in Europe, all members of sailing clubs. The sailing clubs are insured, but to protect themselves the club insurers do require big liability policies from all the member's and visitor's boats.

The good news is that accidents are infrequent, so those policies are dirt cheap (2M liability only insurance for my Nacra is around 40/$65 per year)
