Sail for Gold Regatta - Early entry fee discount period extended

2013 Sail for Gold Regatta event organisers are happy to confirm that the early entry fee discount period, which was due to close on Friday 10 May, will remain open until the final entry deadline of Friday 31 May - giving sailors the opportunity to get their entries in without breaking the bank!

The Sail for Gold Regatta, the third stage of the EUROSAF Champions Sailing Cup, gets underway from 9–13 June on the Olympic and Paralympic waters of Weymouth and Portland and is the only international multi-class Olympic and Paralympic event in the UK.

As well as the discounted entry fee for the regatta remaining open, sailors are also able to take advantage of reduced-fare ferry deals to the UK thanks to a tie-up with DFDS Seaways and Stena Line. The regatta follows on from the Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblik, the Netherlands, from 21-25 May and with generous ferry deals from mainland Europe, and with the WPNSA site free of charge for training for all competing sailors from Monday 3 June, it’s now even easier for competitors to race in Holland and then cross the English Channel for the next stage of EUROSAF competition.

With over 180 athletes from 20 different nations already entered for this flagship event, sailors can rest assured that personnel from the World Class Race Management teams who were instrumental in delivering a successful Olympic and Paralympic Games at the same venue last summer will be used to ensure top quality racing and support across all races courses at Weymouth and Portland.

The event is also teaming up with SailRacer and Danish company SportsXstream to provide an enhanced online experience for sailors, coaches and fans alike. Combining their respective experiences in online media and live streaming for sailing events, SailRacer and SportsXstream will be joining forces to deliver live video from the racecourses and GPS tracking solutions across the Sail for Gold fleets.

Sail for Gold Event Director Tim Hall commented: 'RYA and WPNSA staff are working hard on final preparations and can assure sailors that we will be offering the best possible racing in a few weeks’ time. Although the discounted early entry fee period is extended, we urge sailors to get their entries in as soon as possible please.'

Entries can be made via the event website and must be received no later than 31 May 2013.
