To all Etchells sailors,

On behalf of the Sydney Etchells Fleet I welcome competitors and supporters to the 2012 Etchells World Championship. In February 2012 we expect sunny days with temperatures in the high 20ís (centigrade that is), with 10-15 knot NE sea breezes (however it is a Regatta so who knows). We have a World class Venue, ISAF Race Management Team and Jury and we look forward to providing the very best in Etchells racing and an enjoyable Regatta for all competitors. Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron, the host club is very near Sydney CBD and, for Partners and Supporters, there is plenty of action in Sydney and plenty of sights to see at this time of the year. We very much look forward to seeing in Sydney this February.

Richard Hammond
Sydney Fleet Captain

On behalf of the members of Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron I am pleased to welcome the skippers and crew of yachts competing in the 2012 Etchells World Championships, as part of our Sesquicentenary year. The Squadron has hosted the Etchells NSW & Australian Championship in recent years and the class is no stranger to us as we host racing for them each Saturday through summer. Having hosted the 2011 Farr 40 Worlds and with the Yngling Worlds set for January 2012, the Squadron is well prepared to host the Etchells Worlds next February. Sydney Harbour is one of the most beautiful harbours in the world and the waters offshore offer first class racing conditions. I am confident you will have a week of great sailing and I wish all competitors the best of luck.
Best wishes,

Malcolm Levy
Commodore, Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron
