Dear Sailors,

2karloIn behalf of Yacht Club Labud I can express our great pleasure to be your host for XI edition of Split Olympic Sailing Week !
SOSW 2015 will be again organized in later term then usually (in March). This year (in 2015) the first gun of the first star will be given on 2nd of May at 11.00 AM while last racing day is 5th of May.
There are two main reasons for such schedule: First is that we have good feedback from sailors from last year with later term as generally we have better and more pleasant sailing conditions then in March.
Second reason is related to the fact that our club is host for Finn Open European Championship which will take place from 9. -17. May. We have try to fit SOSW in ideal relations with Finn EC so the Finn sailors can have great opportunity to have perfect worming up regatta before probably their the most important event in 2015, Finn EC.
But also, SOSW is for sure fantastic solution for final season "tune-up" for Lasers, Laser Radials (M/W) as well 470 (M/W). These 4 classes (6 events) are limit for this year and as you all might know Croatian sailors are among the best in the world in those events!
We can guarantee perfect organization as we have secure very professional and experienced Race Committee and International Jury with Marianne Middelton as Chief umpire as well large number of club volunteers and profesional staf.
Not less important is the fact that we have great support from Town of Split, County of Split, Tourist board of Split and our sponsors: PBZ Leasing, Honda Marine, Croatia Lloyd, First Sailing, Sailing Point, Marine Pool, Nautika centar Nava, Virga etc...
You can expect great sailing but also lot of fun on shore in our club and in typical Mediterranean town, our town of Split.

Looking forward to see you soon in Split,

Karlo Kuret
SOSW project coordinator
