2015 Laser Masters Worlds entries close 4 June 2015

A reminder from ILCA that 4 June 2015 is the Entry Closing date for the 2015 Laser Masters World Championship from 10 to 18 July 2015 in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

If you are considering coming to compete in Canada, there is still time to register and there are some charter boats available.

If you are concerned about the strong US dollar vs your currency, please note that the Canadian dollar has more or less maintained parity with most other world currencies and so your expenses while in Canada for lodging, etc, should still be relatively affordable.

For detailed information about the event and to submit an application, please visit the ILCA 2015 Laser Masters World Championships webpage.
