Subaru Flying Fifteen Worlds – Call for Volunteers


The National Yacht Club is hosting the Flying Fifteen World Championships from 1st to 13th September.

We expect up to 86 boats to enter the worlds and they all need to be measured and inspected for Class Rules compliance over 3 days: Saturday 31st August, Sunday 1st September and Thursday 5th September (day between the pre-Worlds and Worlds)
This is a fun way to get involved with this amazing event and to meet all the visitors coming from as far away as Hong Kong!
No previous experience as a measurer required as Class measurers will supervise the various stations (Control Desk / Weigh Station / Spars Inspection / Sails Measurement / Safety Checks)
