2015 F16 Europeans to be biggest F16 event ever

20th to 24th of July the 2015 F16 Europeans are hosted by Circolo nautico Cesinatico in Italy and the event promises to be best ever organised in Europe.

Today already 39 boats are registered and there are only 2 days left to pay the lower entry fee.
More than half of the fleet are mixed teams and 4 solo sailors show once again the versatility of the F16.
We see a healthy mix of leisure sailors which will get great racing, sun and good social events and names that will be battling on top of the leader board. Let’s introduce some of them:
– Sanne Wielenga/Thomas De Jong – Nacra F16: These youths placed 10th overall at Round Texel this year and will be the Dutch team to watch.

– Adrian Fawcett/Jesse Dobie – Falcon F16: These Aussies took the F16 world champion title last year in Newport and will be eager to defend their title this year!

– Emmanuel Le Chapelier/Eric Le Bouedec – Bimare F16: Having won Eurocat multiple times, and the Viper worlds these guys have been on fire for a while.

– Aurélie Van Schoote/Morgan Good – Falcon F16: These youths took the vice-world champion title in 2013 in Germany and the French F16 title. Morgan is currently campaigning on the Nacra 17 but will team up with Aurélie again for this event.

– Henri Demesmaeker/Alec Bagué – Viper F16: Also from Belgium this team has won the last edition of Eurocat. In 2013 Henri became F16 world champion and in the 2014 Europeans took 2nd. Young but a lot of experience already they will be going for gold.

Dear friends of fast multihull sailing,

“Size does not matter” – but hardly anyone knows it. To change this and to strengthen our class, the International Formula 16 Class Association will take a stand on the multihull forum Boot Dusseldorf. Here we will present the sailing world our offer: a fast, safe and easy boat, single-handed, double-handed, families and youth fit, while one of the fastest sailboats are available on the market today.

Gill de Bryne will provide a Falcon F16 and the association and some members are available to supervise the booth. But we get the booth not free. The Fair Dusseldorf calculated 2.000, – EUR, we currently do not have the cash. Therefore we ask you and every other supporters of our sport to make a donation so that our trade fair can be financed. Any amount is welcome, you will receive a receipt for tax purposes and will officially as Formula 16 supporters listed on our site. That is, if you wish.
