Class 3C Worlds 2009

Hi All

Can anyone confirm the rumour that the Class 3C worlds are in Sicily in 2009?

If they are, will many of you guys be taking your boats there from the UK?

Had anyone given any thought to how is best to get there? Its a long way!

Cheers

Jacques

At the moment they are scheduled for Palermo, according to the UIM website.
Unfortunately we cannot make it as it clashes with our lads wedding. Thought it might be prudent to go to the wedding and hence keep the dangly bits between my legs intact!!

Probably yes for the Xr 2 since mercury has announced that there will be no new 200 xs until 2010 season...(personally wonder if even then ).

Hi Jacques,

Giovanni
