Next month - the country allocations are being finalized by the International Class. Once that's done, each country has 30-45 days to fill their slots. Say Uzbekistan is allocated 20 slots - they'll have until mid May or so to register. If they've only filled 18 slots by the deadline, two slots go back to the International Class to reallocate to another country. So around the end of May, countries that filled their allocations and requested additional slots will be notified there is room.

We still expect the US Class to be allocated about 30 slots initially. If you're one of them, you'll hear from Dave Ingram with registration information. Following that, there will be about a month gap until we get unused slots back from other countries and can register more US teams.

There's an updated NOR about to be published, but it really only clarifies things for international teams.

Important note - just like at the F18 North Americans - you cannot be protested for a CE vest, but you are still breaking the law and can get a ticket from the Harbor Patrol.

I would love some help with website management - anyone have a suggestion for a volunteer?

John, What all is involved in the website management? I would be happy to help, but do not have much background in web programming languages. Might also be good to get a facebook page, and possibly a twitter account going.... I just registered @F18EasternArea yesteday

The International Class has the domain for the 2012 Worlds, Mike Easton and his team did a great job last year with the North Americans Joomla site. I just need someone who can be fed info who has time to get it onto the Joomla site, which the Worlds URL will point to. I keep fooling myself into thinking I can cover it, but the sponsorship, race management and tracking stuff has got me underwater.

At a 61st place last year what are the odds of getting a spot?

John I have some free time and could help out some if needed.

We did discuss it but shipping would shorten our season by about 2-3 months frown
Not too many people are going so not sure there even is a container at this stage actually.

Unfortunately chartering costs more than I care to spend on a week's sailing smile
