    There are a couple of good venues keen to host a major 5o5 event in Northern Spain (eg Barcelona). These proposals can be considered and discussed at upcoming Class AGMs but this particular forum facilitates open and wider discussion on this idea in the meantime.

    Scheduling a major regatta in Spain provides the Class with the opportunity to attract Spanish sailors into 5o5s as well as the opportunity for us to go to a new venue.  To maximise the opportunity it may make sense to also have an annual regatta there. Perhaps even a 5th leg of the Euro Cup Series to be held in last weekend of September or first weekend in October.

    We could potentially schedule a regatta in Barcelona or further north on the Costa Brava this year. Suggested dates are 27,28,29 September or 4,5,6 October. (Keep in mid the Hayling Island Euro Cup event is 6,7,8 September).

    Please feel free to comment in this forum on either or both of the following :

    1. Should we consider Spain for the next European Championship (or World Championship)?
    2. If we run a regatta in or north of Barcelona on last weekend in September or first weekend in October would you attend? Please complete this survey.
