ISAF Evaluation Trials – Registration dated for September trials extended to July 14th
ISAF has extended the deadline for registrations for the September 2003 trials until July 14th. "This is a serious trial during which concepts as well as equipment will be evaluated. Presentations can be made in the strictest confidence in the form of promotional videos, diagrams, slide shows or reports. You do not have to bring any equipment to this event.
ISAF have an open mind. This is a big opportunity for the sport to come up with some new ideas. Do not miss this chance.
Current ISAF policy is that any new equipment recommended should be able to conform to a measurement rule so that as many brands as possible can be involved in the Olympic process.

Aloha, Mistral & Raceboard Junior, Youth & Masters Europeans
Puck, Poland – August 2-10
It seems that some of you may have been over alarmed by the message in the last newsletter about traveling by car to this event. Driving in Poland is as SAFE as driving in any other European country so do not expect anything other than a normal road journey. However, it is always sensible to be aware and not take any unnecessary risks. We look forward to meeting you all again and enjoying a great regatta in the hands of a highly experienced local organiser! Keep those entries coming!
Transferring from Warsaw with your equipment?
