6th October 2006
The Royal Yacht Squadron is delighted to have been selected as the Organising Authority and Host of the 2007 International Six Metre World Championship, 16 - 23 July 2007. We very much look forward to welcoming old and new friends to Cowes and to the Royal Yacht Squadron and are working hard together with our sponsors, the International Six Metre Association and the British International Six Metre Association, to ensure that we enjoy a memorable Championship both on and off the water. All competitors will be made Temporary Members of the RYS for the duration of the Regatta, and will also be welcome to use the facilities of the other Cowes clubs.
Within the RYS website are dedicated regatta pages (www.rys.org.uk/sixmetreworlds), which will contain all the relevant information, including entry and berthing forms, and these pages will be kept constantly up to date. I particularly draw your attention to the Cowes Information Page which you will find very useful when planning your trip to Cowes. However, please do not hesitate to contact the RYS Office (+44 (0) 1983 292191) should you have any questions; we will be pleased to assist you.
I look forward to welcoming you to Cowes.
