Manufacturers Reception Night!   October 12, 2022

Set aside October 12th for the Manufacturers Reception night.   We have asked all the manufacturers to step up to the plate and support this event.    We want to make this a special night for the Manufacturers and for the sailors.   We will have an early reception where we hope to hear from the different manufacturers about what they are doing and what they have planned for the future for the F18 Class and give them a chance to speak about their designs.    This will be part of what we air out to the outside audience watching at home as well as in the 10 minute documentary that will be produced.

Every event at a hotel is very expensive.   We have asked each manufacturer to sponsor $100 for each team who are sailing their design.   This will give the companies who are just starting out to be a part of the action as well.   We have asked that each manufacturer do a 10 boat minimum donation.   In addition we have asked each manufacturer to donate one item to the raffle that we will have at the event.   The sailors will enjoy this sponsored reception on October 12th.

A portion of the proceeds from entire event will be donated to the My Sail Youth Foundation with its Southeast foundation located right here in Clearwater, FL.

For the sailors, please make sure to visit the Raffle page and you will see what your manufacturers are donating so you can plan to bid on items you may want.

As the deadline for the first early registration discount approaches (March 31, 2022), We are happy to announce additional sponsorship for those boats shipping over seas by container or Ro/Ro.

We are able to increase sponsorship to $200.00 per boat for any boat shipping overseas.

Charter boats and new or used boats being sold to the US do not qualify for this sponsorship. So for those teams who consolidated their container loads and have 10 boats on board, they can get up to $2000.00 to help with shipping costs!

We are really excited about being able to offer this and thank our sponsors for this event…Immunolin, Andersen Tax, Gondelier Restaurants, Sheraton Sand Key Resort, Red Gear Racing, Clearwater and St Petersburg Yacht clubs. We also hope to have more coming on board soon to help make this event even better.
