Mooloolaba: Fleet has a diary date for you

8 December 2011 Trevor Martin

Mooloolaba 2012

"Mooloolaba 2012"

I know the focus is on State, Aussies and Worlds regattas, but for just one minute, can you all please pull out your 2012 diary and mark down the following dates - 7th to 10th June, as these will be the Etchells Winters.

The Winters are starting to come together really well. The Wilson brothers are in charge of race management, The Wharf Tavern is looking forward to hosting us, post-racing, and The Wharf has our bookings for berths. Newport Apartments are again helping with accommodating officials and Sun Air will provide them with airport transport.

We would like to sign a lead sponsor. After four consecutive years, Musto has stepped back from that role, so now a new lead sponsor is being sought. Any ideas? If so, let me know.

Whether there is a lead sponsor in place or not, there is no reason for the Winters not to go ahead.

Mooloolaba is a great place to go racing, as we have quick access to the open-water course area, great sailing conditions, lots of fun back onshore and we're family friendly. Everyone is welcome and the party is on us.

We will keep everyone updated on event planning through the event website.
