Dear Sailors,

On behalf of the host Yacht Club Labud it is my pleasure to invite you to the XII edition of the Split Olympic Sailing Week which will be held, in April from 14 to 17th 2016.
As you can see in the Notice of race, 12th SOSW is scheduled for Laser 4.7 class, having in mind our young sailors while we decided to drop 49er and 470 M / W due to lack of fleet in Croatia.
Apart from that we have shortened the event to days of racing to make the event more accessible to sailors with other duties: work, college or study.
However, for all who would like to have a package which includes a quality training, J.K. Labud will be opened from April 9th without charges. Additionally on the official entry confirmation day (April 14th ) J.K. Labud will organize official training – two practice races.
Croatian sailors in the scheduled classes ranks among the best in the world with names as Stipanović, Jurišić, Mihelić, Kljaković, Perković , established International Jury , involvement of professionals and volunteers are reasons to include 12th SOSW edition in your 2016 racing calendar.
I can add that SOSW Regatta is recognized as a true sports brand of the County of Split so this is one more guarantee that you can expect top level sailing event.

Looking forward to see you in Split in April,

Karlo Kuret
SOSW project coordinator
