Associations; please let us know if you are intending to have your association Titles run in conjunction the Wildcat. Planning and communication avoids misunderstandings around NOR and Sailing Instructions for competitors. There can be complications regarding insurances as to who is conducting the event. And, even the allocation of prizes.
Associations, or groups, who simply collect the results at the end of the regatta for their groups use are ok. The F18 group collect results for the travellers series and I think other associations have done so in the past.
Results will be complied using Sailwave. We are happy to provide and email the results to you as a sailwave or excel file.
Unfortunately, due to the large numbers of competitors in the fleets, individual times are recorded for mixed fleets only as the fleet results are scored using yardstick.
Staying at the club area as always it will be on a first come basis. The club would like campers to be mindful of others and make sure that everyone gets to share in the experience. We acknowledge that many competitors are staying off-site and we are developing systems to ensure that these people stay informed when there are postponements. Facebook updates are important. We know that hanging around a venue for hours waiting for the wind is not family friendly so head to town and keep an eye on Facebook for updates.

More to come and as always- suggestions are welcome.
