Ciao Jluc and all, Good! > I agree, lets intra-race for the practices and extra-race for the micros. Until we can make sub-groups, We can do 7/8 races (instead 5) in the micro.

Host can decide how many races. > Frankly speaking, i have the following idea: lets continue to recrut > skippers until we can set up national sub-groups named UNT-it, UNT_gbr, > UNT_de, UNT_fr, UNT_ned, ....
