2010 World Council Meeting Announcement

The 2010 IJCA World Council Meeting will be held on Friday, November 19th at the Florida Yacht Club in Jacksonville Florida. Information about the yacht club can be found at: www.thefloridayachtclub.org.  Each NJCA is requested to send a representative to this important meeting.

The timing of this meeting is set to coincide with the annual King’s Day Regatta hosted by J/24 Fleet 55 on the waters of the St. John’s River on November 20-21. The meeting attendees are welcome to stay and observe or participate in the King’s Day Regatta. Crew positions may be available on local boats, and attempts will be made to arrange boats for loan or charter for those wishing to sail this event. More information on this will be forthcoming. Also note that Jacksonville will also be the location of the 2012 J/24 North American Championship.

The tentative schedule is as follows:

Thursday, November 18 –  Arrival and transfer from Jacksonville (JAX) airport. A boat cruise will depart from the Florida Yacht Club at 1800 with a stop for dinner.

Sunday, November 21 – 0930 First Warning Signal. No race will start after 1400. Departure as needed.

Jacksonville is the largest city in Florida and offers a wide variety of activities and amenities. The city is serviced by the Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) and transfer from the airport to the meeting site/hotel can be arrange with prior notice. We hope to enlist local Fleet 55 members to assist with airport pick-ups and drop-offs.

We are currently making arrangements for a hotel. It is expected that the cost will be around $75-$95 per night for a private room. More information on hotel booking will be forthcoming.
