IT IS OFFICIAL - The 2008 Flying Eleven Nationals will be held in the sound adjacent to the heads in Sydney Harbour which offers some variation in conditions for our keen young fleet.

The host club for the regatta will be the Manly 16ft Skiffs Sailing Club and the event will be run from the 13th of January 2008 to the 19th of January 2008, which will allow for all Sabot, Manly Junior, and 29er crews to be available to compete in what promises to be one of the biggest Flying Eleven Nationals fleet regattas for many years.

The Sabots will hold their national regatta at Vaucluse just after Christmas and the Manly Junior Nationals will be conducted from Middle Harbour Yacht Club over the New Year period, with those sailors who wish to compete in the 29er Worlds in Sorrento, Victoria from the 5th to the 9th January 2008 also free to compete in both fleet nationals too.

Special arrangements for parking and on water/shore viewing facilities will be published shortly, so we ask that you regularly check the 2008 Nationals menu and regular news articles relating to the event on our website.

There will be more Flying Eleven training camps than ever before in the lead up to this coming Nationals, including a live-in camp planned where the crews can have a bit of fun as well as working hard to take in all that our National Coaching Coordinator and ex-champion (F11's) will be imparting along with his class specific F11 coaches. The Association will also be conducting a number of "special guest" seminars during the next 7 months and a lot more work on the Sailing Rules for our potential champions.


Stay tuned.
