Change of Venue for 2008 Europeans
Received hot off the press from Paul Perrera, World Council Vice President:""As a result of my visit to Holland this week I can now officially confirm that the 29"er World Council has approved a re scheduling of the 29"er 2008 European Championships which now will be held in Medemblik, Holland 20th July to 26th July 2008. This event now follows immediately after the ISAF"s in Denmark . We are confident that by choosing this superb facility we will attract a large entry assisted by attractive charter boats arrangements.Having received over whelming support for this change from the large European fleets , we confidently estimate a major turn out of 150 to 200 boats making this the Premier World event for 29"er for 2008.The dates will be posted on the world website in the next few days. We hope to re schedule an event in Portugal in 2009 or 2010""
