From the Vega Association of Great Britain.

Many of you will be thinking about laying up your Vega for the coming winter, perhaps you have already put your boat away for another year. When you have your boat safely laid up I hope you will start considering your plans for 2018.

The Vega Association of Great Britain (VAGB) would like to remind you of the 27th International Friendship Rally that we are organizing at the Royal Harwich Yacht Club between the 26th July 2018 to the 31st July 2018. Our programme will be the normal mix of social events, convivial meals and friendly races for those who wish to participate. Knowing the nature of our fickle weather, we can’t guarantee sunshine but we can guarantee a warm welcome to all our visitors.

At this early stage we are not looking for a firm commitment from owners but we would like to gain some idea of potential attendees so that we can plan our event and gain some idea of costs etc. The Provisional Registration Form is attached and should be submitted no later than 7thJanuary, 2018.

Our current plan is to gain sufficient information on potential numbers and costs to be able to send out a Binding Registration Form with costs included by 1st February 2018 with a deadline for bookings to be confirmed by 1stMarch 2018 and Payments to be received by the 14th March 2018.

Please help us to make next year’s IFR a truly memorable event.

Yours sincerely

Anne Steele

(Hon Sec of VAGB)
