It has been a cold weekend, but it is not time to pack your boat away, just yet. Below you will find an announcement about the VLA mid-Winter Series, so we are looking for a good turnout of VLA members. Also included in this newsletter is an update from 2014 Club Marine Junior & Youth Championships, we have a call to action for a VLA Laser Coach, Laser sailing at Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club, VLA website update, ILCA announcements over the month and for VLA association members who are interested in improving fitness over the winter months a great app to help you out. Till next month. Happy reading.
