Hi there WASZPs
 
Some of our English sailors have been able to get out on the water and we are hoping that our Scotish and Welsh will be able to have the oppoitunity too soon.
We have had all our nominations for the new WASZP UK team that will come into effect after the AGM. As each each role has a person allocated we see no reason to go to a vote, however if you have an objections to any of the below please can you email the secretary.
 
We would also like to extend out thanks to the leaving WASZP team who have suported the class with passion and energy. Max Todd especally as he has acted as not only the chair but as Class Coach. He extraordinary efforts have helped us grow and develop in both numbers and ability.

If any voting needs to be done you will need to be a paid member to have your vote. Votes are to be sent to the secretary in this case to be counted. All WASZP owners are invited to the meeting.

Matters arising

Back at WASZP Uk headquarters, (better known as my dining room table) there has been much action behind the scenes. Primarily the discussions have been how and when we will be getting back on the water.

Our first event of season 2020 will occur next week 15-16th April. Our WASZP Sailors race for points for the first time in 2020.

We are looking to host 5 eSailing events over 2020 culminating in a Virtual WASZP Games in August.

These events are only open to current WASZP Sailors and you must register with your current WASZP Sail Number. This means we can re-ignite those classic on-water battles from the last few seasons!

Within the new RACE HUB we will have a Global Rankings system that will be scored across 3 disciplines for 2020 and beyond.

- eSailing
- GPS
- Championship Racing

We will be limited to 60 competitors for the first event however depending on interest WASZP may revise that number.

WASZP are continually looking at ways to enhance the experience of our sailors/customers and are committed to the mantra that when you buy a WASZP you are buying more than just a boat!

Stay tuned for more information over the coming weeks about our RACE HUB and stay involved with our eLearning Hub untill you can get back on the water.

To launch out new eWASZP RACE HUB that will create global rankings for our WASZP sailors for 2020 and beyond. . The RACE HUB consists of 3 categories with the potential addition of SLALOM. . eSailing. GPS. Championship Racing. . . While majority of the sailing world is in lockdown, we will kick off....
 

It is with deepest regret that we will not be holding the GP and Euro Cup this weekend at Queen Mary Sailing Club.

We have been advised holding event will bring lots of people together for briefings and socials, however as it is due to "social distancing' Queen Mary will however be open to any people who wish to sail as people in boats do dot come into contact with one another.

We will be taking one event at a time and monitor how the situation with the Coronavirus at the time of the upcoming events. 

Queen Mary Sailing Club are delighted with the amount of entries and have invited us back to visit them again when the wave of virus is over. We had an excellent training event at Queen Mary early spring and plan to go again.
