Dear Flying Fifteen sailors,
I believe there are many UK sailors considering entering the worlds but unsure to whether they will get a place.
I would like to clarify the situation:
Firstly, the UKFFA “World Qualification table” only becomes relevant if entries for the worlds at CNCM exceed 110.
Based on feedback received, FFI’s expectation of entries from the host country France plus other overseas countries not including the UK is in the order of 50-55 boats.
That would leave at least 55 places for UK boats which even with the best will in the world we are extremely unlikely to take up.
Therefore my recommendation is if you want to go whether you are an open, silver or classic then enter now and get your accommodation and ferry booked asap!
