A little help for Youth teams coming to Cagliari

We want more Youth teams on the start line for the Hobie Cat 16 European Championship 2013 in October. This is why Windsurfing Club Cagliari decided to help young Hobie sailors to join the race.

We understand that sailing in Cagliari means an extra cost for ferry transfer. We know that all too well - our athletes need to pay extra for every single event on mainland Italy or anywhere in Europe. Now, with the support of our sponsors and a strong encouragement from the European Hobie Cat Association, we decided to try and cut Championship costs for some of the younger sailors. This is our proposal:

1) since no camping facilities are available close to the Championship venue, up to 15 Youth teams will be allowed to put up a tent inside the Windsurfing Club Cagliari area. 30 people maximum, competitors only, on a first-come, first-served basis, following the official entry list. Requests can be sent to info@hobiecat-cagliari2013.eu.

Please note: no electricity can be provided. Caravans, campers, motorhomes will have to stay outside, into an area designated by the City (that's a public parking that will be reserved for the Championship's guests - no camping services are available).

2) For those Youth teams that are not equipped for camping, or maybe reseved with hotels or B&Bs already, or will register too late to apply for a camping spot, Windsurfing Club Cagliari offers 15 hospitality vouchers (up to 200 euros per team) to spend with hotels and B&Bs listed on the event's website. Please note: no vouchers for apartment rentals, sorry. Again, the official entry list will be followed to assign these vouchers. More details will be given at the Registration desk. Requests for hospitality vouchers can be sent to info@hobiecat-cagliari2013.eu.
