RS500 Worlds preparation 

This is the first newsletter on RS500 worlds to get into the mood and to prepare for the upcoming  RS500 Worlds in Bruinisse, The Netherlands. 

1. Preparation of social activities 

NEW: International party preparation. 

The RS500 Worlds is known for its fantastic traditions, and this year is no exception! In addition to our Dutch party, we’re thrilled to introduce an International Party.  
To add a fun twist, we’re incorporating a dress code: we invite you to wear something that represents your home country.      

Feel free to bring a delicious (alcoholic) beverage from your country to share, making the party even more lively and culturally diverse. Sailors are always in for a fun game, so bring your best games and have some fun.Coordinate with your fellow sailors to surprise everyone with your best outfits and games to make this a memorable event and possibly a new tradition.

Automatisch gegenereerde beschrijvingNEWS from the International RS500 class 

We received message from The International RS500 class that they will be arranging a daily price giving where every sailor will have the equal chance to win a price! 
This price giving takes place every evening from Monday to Thursday.  
Time and place will be announced later. 

2. Race preparation 

Sail measurements 

The measurement of the mainsail will take place at registration 

The race committee has asked us to make sure that all sail numbers are easy to read. This to avoid problems determining your finish position. For this reason we will check on the colour and location of your sail number and nationality letters. 

This diagram can be found on Documents | RS 500 International Class Association under “Sail Numbers Diagram”.  

See also Notice of Race (Event – RS500 Worlds Bruinisse 2024) : 

So, when registering for the event, please do not forget to bring your main sail. 

Membership RS500 International 

The RS500 International class association requires membership in order to compete in the Worlds, see also the Notice of Race. This will be checked at registration. Please arrange your membership upfront. 

This is not applicable to Dutch, Czech or UK sailors: they do not need to arrange membership of the International class association, it is already included in their national membership. For sailors of  other countries please arrange your membership. Be aware that both helm and crew need to arrange a membership, so two memberships per boat.
