On site registration is now open in the Race office at Hotel Montecarlo. Early arrivals are already testing the waters, looking forward to practice races and also to the Opening Ceremony this evening for the IFCA Junior, Youth and Masters World Championships taking place this week on the Costa Brava, Spain.
The Bay of Roses is the perfect Slalom racing area as the thermal winds from the sea and the gradient northerly Tramuntana winds assure excellent sailing conditions. 85 competitors are on the pre-entry list so the final tally looks likely to be well over a hundred.
As well as the racing, there is plenty to do and see in the "Village" where there will be a range of activities and exhibitions throughout the week.
Racing starts tomorrow and continues until Saturday. Stay tuned on IFCA Facebook
