2012 Events - A letter from the Class Secretary!

The Feva calendar kicks off with what I know will be our most dynamic in years.  The Feva fleet will be joining in with some of its bigger brothers the RS 200s and RS400s at 4 new regattas.  We trialed this idea last year and it made for a great buzz event in Ballyholme.

We are really excited by the opportunities that joining with the wider RS family brings us, lots of racing and superb regattas to choose from.  We would really encourage as many as possible to join us at the Worlds – it’s across the water in Hayling Island, near Portsmouth, fantastic event and very doable for a family trip.

The FEVA events and training calendar looks like this.
