The Queensland State Government has selected the F18 World Titles (to be held in Yeppoon, Central Queensland between February 18 – 25, 2007) to provide funding assistance to aid the promotions and marketing of the event as part of the Queensland Events Regional Development Program.

The Premier of Queensland, Hon Peter Beattie pledges his support to the F18 World Titles and the activity that the event is expected to bring to Central Queensland.

“The focus of the program is to increase local economic activity and development, to enhance the appeal of the destination in which the event is held and to enhance the experience for visitors.

“Through events, Queensland has the opportunity to showcase its uniqueness, talents and people to the world.

“I wish you every success with your event,” he said.

The State Government’s support will also go a long way to promoting the sport of F18 sailing in Australia which is the fastest growing class of sailboat in the world. Around 80 boats with crews and family are expected from all over Australia, Europe, North and South America, including past Olympic medallists such as Australian Olympic Silver Medallist Darren Bundock, Olympic Bronze Medallist Mitch Booth and more.
