2015 Minnow Nationals

A message from our friends in WA: "Hello all, here is a flyer with details of the WA Nationals, most details are on the flyer.  We are well on the way to organising things, we have some major sponsors lined up so should be a heap of prizes.  We have set the dates to be straight after the Youth Nationals in case anyone has older children in the Youth Regatta’s.

Open fleet Race Officer is an international RO,  Robin Olsen, who will be coming straight from the Tasar worlds to the Minnow Nationals.  John Standley (International Judge and current Chair of the YWA protest/appeals committee) is the protest chairman, some well respected names in WA.

We are looking to host a fun, competitive, family orientated regatta with a range of wind strengths (Huey permitting!!), with a lay-day in the middle of the regatta to relax, recuperate and enjoy the area.

We look forward to hosting you all in WA."
