The Etchells World Championship in Newport, RI, is only two and a half months away! If you have qualified to race in the 2014 World Championship, you must enter by May 15, 2014, to avoid a late fee!

Secure your spot on the line soon. The International Etchells Class is considering expanding the percentage of qualifiers per fleet in May, which will make more boats qualified to register. There is still a cap on the total number of boats allowed to race, so if you are already qualified, this is your last chance to register before additional boats are invited to take your spot!

Visit the Etchells world Championship website for the NOR, amendments, registration and logistics information.
