420 World Championships 2016 - Estimate of Costs


The committee are now working on a program and draft budget for the 420 World Championships in Sanremo Italy in July and estimate that up to 8 boats may travel.  The program will include transportation of boats, accommodation and the payment of a second coach in addition to Ross Killian, ISA National Coach.

While the final program will be dependent on the number of crews who meet the qualification criteria and accept their places on the team, we currently estimate that the likely cost per sailor will be €1,500 together with the cost of entry flight and food which we estimate at €550.

We will further update sailors and their parents on the likely cost when team places are offered after the Irish Youth Nationals in early April and a final costing will be issued before payment balance on 1st July.

Bearing in mind the size of the team, we will need the assistance of parents in the transportation of the boats and in the supervision of sailors at the event for the trip to be a success.  If some parents have the time to assist can you please contact Jim Mc Mahon as soon as possible.
