With the Skandia Sail for Gold regatta looming out of the Weymouth & Portland Sailing Academy over 14-19 September, so the RYA have finally taken delivery of their Elliot 6s, which will be used for the women's match racing event.

The boats arrived 10 days ago and are currently being prepared for some warm-up events to be held out out of the 2012 Olympic sailing venue prior to Sail For Gold. These include the Women's National Match Racing Championship on 5-6 September, followed by the fifth event in the Women’s Match Racing National Qualification Series over 7-9 Sept to which, the RYA's Lindsey Bell tells us, international teams have also been invited... Finally come Skandia Sail for Gold where the boats will be augmented by the four boats from the Dutch fleet (pictured) so that 24 teams can use them to compete.
