There have been a few questions regarding the process for entry fees and non-paying sailors.
As you all know when we accepted the proposal to hold the 2017 Worlds in Barbados, one of the biggest incentives was the offer from Geest to transport containers from Portsmouth and Le Havre at a significant reduction in cost. There was no comparable offer for Australia, New Zealand and USA, therefore to introduce a level of fairness OKDIA pitched the event based on shared costs – a uniform entry fee for everyone to include shipping and entry fee. This was widely approved and has been the model we have worked on since then.
