The new year is upon us and the 505 class EXCO would like to wish the class members all the best and happy sailing this year.

The 505 class is preparing for a bumper year with lots of local events and two world championships within the space of 6 months. Things are hotting up locally with the Aeolians Club planning a monthly dinghy racing series on the Vaaldam and all 505s are encouraged to make the trip and participate, while at the coast, more and more boats are joining the clubs and the prospects of a growing class are looking good. Let's all support local effort and build the class to great numbers in 2018. 

Two world championships in the space of a 6 months, is a bit like a blue moon, it just does not happen often. If you are keen as a 505er and want to get into it, then get going. Poland is in July, unfortunately it does not look like SA will be sending a container there but speak to Holger Jess and he promised to assist with the organising of a charter boat. The other option is to attend the World Championship in Fremantle. There is lots of interest from the local fleet and the class Exco is already speaking to the shipping companies. This will be a great event with pre-worlds on the 28th to the 30th and the Worlds in the first week in January. No excuse for no leave! Great timing to also take the family along. Make a plan and contact the class Exco for more information! 

Have a blast and please make an effort to attend the local events!
