We'll inform you about the routes as soon as possible.
Program DSC 2016, 30 June - 9 July
This is the global program with all the information you need. Soon we will send an update by mail. Do you receive all our e-mails correct? If not, please let us know.
All 8 Steps
To participate you will need to be well-prepared. Prospective participants are required to fulfill a number of preconditions. At various times during the building process our technical commission will judge each team. They will check if the plan is worked out correct and if the design and technical system are correct. Before the race starts, the complete boat will be inspected. When all teams successfully pass these steps, the competition starts!
The teams must pass these eight steps before being allowed to join the other competitors at the starting line. The organisation has the right to change all data.
Notice! For the V20-class there is an exception, because steps 2, 3 and 4 have already been done. So in this class you only need to take steps 1, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
