Summer of 2020 Event Report

It takes a huge amount of strategy, planning and organisation and hard work to run successful large high profile sailing events.

Volunteers for Laser 2020 Events at Sandringham Yacht Club

The brilliant team in the Victorian Laser Association under Event Director James Mitchell and VLA President John d’Helin along with more than 100 volunteers and full support from hosting clubs Sandringham YC and Royal Geelong YC did a fabulous job organising and running the six events of the Summer of 2020 in Melbourne earlier this year.

There were 850 entries for the six events and 300 for the Laser World Masters which unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the CV. The sailors came from more than 40 countries. There are posts covering each of these events earlier on this site.

James has prepared a post event report which is essential reading for folks contemplating running sailing events on this scale. James’ report is HERE.
