In a major announcement made today, ASSA President, Mr. Rob Wasson, has told the press that this year’s National Championship will include a new division expressly aimed at the Class’s more experienced sailors.
Criteria for entry into the “Masters Division” will be a Skipper of at least 50 years of age and at least one of the Crew having attained 50 years of age at a minimum.
“We thought about making it 55 years old but then decided we would like the old buggers to hang around for a few seasons and maybe claim the trophy in their remaining years” Mr. Wasson commented.
A hotline will be set up so ideas for a suitable trophy can be submitted prior to the commencement of the Regatta.
