Dear Members and Friends,
Yet another month has passed and this brings us to within three weeks of the first race of your new championship. In these strange times I can understand a certain hesitancy in signing up but we are forging ahead regardless with a fair amout of optimism for the future.
Thank you to “Spartan” for their gesture of support by joining VCYC and coming back to Europe. They will be welcomed back with open arms and you can follow them as they shake down in Mahon before coming to France for the final events of the season.
However, in order for this venture to develop into the annual event that both you and I would like to see in the future, we need you to come on board and validate the enormous amount of work that has been undertaken these past two years by the passionate VCYC team.
A huge thank you goes to all our members for supporting and believing in this attempt to revive the interest in the Mediterrenean classic racing circuit which has reduced in numbers of competitors generally in recent years. I would so dearly like to see events such as Argentario, Mahon, Barcelona and all the other regattas well attended next year as was the case not so very long ago.
To those of you who have not joined, it is stated in the Notice of Series, we will accept a commitment to sign up to the VCYC before the first race but not after, so don’t delay any longer and don’t miss your chance to play your part and to be scored in the series for it’s inaugural year.
In the end, it is up to all of you as to whether this is a success or not. Let’s make it happen together.
Best regards to all and see you soon on the water.
