2017 SPRING CHAMPIONSHIPS UPDATE #2


Hello College Sailing Nationals enthusiasts!
This is our first update on Nationals 2017- as always ANY questions are welcome. Please do not hesitate.
 
HOTEL RESERVATIONS
If you’ve not checked out the hotel website link- http://www.meetcharleston.com/icsa-college-sailing-nationals  we urge you to do so soon. Nationals time (schedule below) is a busy time in this # 1 ranked tourist town in the world and hotels fill up quickly- and will be more expensive later. I would consider perhaps making a reservation and canceling if necessary.
 
POTENTIAL VIP AND ALUMNI EVENTS
Below we described the possible options for school Vip’s to enjoy some spectating and enjoy all Charleston. We also mentioned some opportunities for schools to host alumni functions and we’d be happy to help facilitate  these arrangements. So far we have had one school express interest . If you’re interested please let us know your intent by March 24. It is not a reservation, just gives us  an idea if we should press forward with this opportunity.
 
BOATS USED IN TEAM RACING
Below we outlined the boats to be sailed in Women’s and COED fleet racing.
 
In Team Racing both Z420’s and FJ’s will be sailed in the initial round robin. In the Round of 8 and the final 4, Z 420’s will be sailed.
