Here’s a little news about what’s going on for the O’pen BIC's. Lots to tell, make sure you’re a part of it!
O’pen BIC’s invited to QLD Youth Week and Sail Sydney: That’s right. The Class has been invited to these two high profile regattas. QLD Youth week (July 2-5) and Sail Sydney (Dec 8-11). Our aim is to get 20 O’pen BIC's sailing at each of these regattas. Please do your best to support the regattas. With several other classes also invited, it'll be a great show case for our class. We will have charter boats available and if you are travelling more than 100km to take part and you already own an O’pen BIC then the Class Association will provide you with a charter boat at no cost. So all you have to do is get to the regattas!! For further details follow these links:

YA Website updates: We are now featured on the Yachting Australia Website. Check it out here. If your club sails O'pen BIC's but is not listed as doing so then have a word to the relevant person at your club and ask them to add the O'pen BIC as one of the classes sailed.
That’s about it for now. Stay warm!
