Do you have a current set of class rules and measurements?

Given the World's is in the USA, will we also have a F16 Nationals this year?

There will not be a US Championships separate from the Worlds in 2014.

Both the International Class President,Thomas Koenig, and the International Class Secretary, Antoine Meunier, will be in attendance. I will be relying on them to provide the latest class rules. Once the event website is up, I envision that they will also be posted there. Please advise if there is something in particular that you are unclear or concerned about Thx.

A current rule set would be helpful, I don't think there is one available online.

I've never been to Rhode Island. Any locals have anything strange the rest of us should know about the area? Like ferrets are illegal or jaywalking is a felony?


I'm boatless.

Lets see, it's Newport, middle of the summer. What's that mean? All the rich yachties and their trophy wives are in-town, plus a few coeds. Oh I forgot you just got married. Moving along...

Parking downtown is a nightmare. Obey the speed limit. Find housing now, it's limited and expensive.

Should be a great event though, really fun place and on my top 5 favorites of all time. Considering attending ourselves

So...where do I park my 1968 VW Camper Van??

Down by the river??

You guys with the fancy RV's can just park them on the front lawn of The Breakers.

Newport is probably my favorite place to sail in the country. Should get a nice southerly seabreeze each day, and Sail Newport will be fantastic hosts. As Sam said, start looking for housing early as Newport gets busy in the summer. One of the guys in our fleet has a beach house nearby which might be available to rent- I can check with him.

Definitely considering chartering a boat for this one- although the dates are really close to the F18 worlds which is a bummer.
