The SAP 5O5 Worlds has everything you’d want from a big event: Container accommodations, spectator boats, live race coverage on the SAP youtube channel, and the event website is a great source of information. So far, all that’s missing is the wind. Like Outkast so wisely said, “You can plan a pretty picnic, but you can’t predict the weather.” The next few days are looking better with breeze coming in for the final days.
Seldén Mast has been on site all week in support. Their “Alto” 505 mast has won about everything there is to win in the 5-Oh class and they’re raffling a brand new one this week. This Alto is from their new “XPS” aluminum alloy, which is harder, stronger. better against corrosion, and can take more bend without a permanent set – ideal in a dinghy mast. You can jump in the raffle at the link below.
From the SAP 2017 International 5O5 World Championship event:
Our Partners at Selden are going to run a raffle for their brand new Alto Mast Section. Each ticket is $1.00, 6 tickets for $5.00, or 12 for $10 to be entered and randomly drawn for this great prize. We will announce the winner at the closing ceremony on Friday. Selden has also agreed to generously donate all proceeds to the Olivia Constants Foundation (link). The Olivia Constants Foundation was founded in honor of Olivia Constants, a talented young 14 year old whose life was taken away on June 23, 2011 in a tragic sailing accident. Olivia lived her life with such joy and has impacted so many people that we have been encouraged to continue her legacy through this foundation. The Foundation is run by Steve Constants a longtime member and leader at SSA.
You can buy as many raffle tickets as you like to maximize your chances of winning this great prize!
