Hey mim

Since you are a foreigner and has participated in the race earlier, it is interesting to know how you applied for the race. According to the registration form you send the medical ceritificate and transfer the fees to GWA. Then you wait and hope you get a slot in the race. Is that how it is done?
Now, lets say you are not one of the lucky 1000. What happens then, do they return the money/med certificate?

Or maybe you just send the registration form first and if you get a spot you send certificate/fees?

Hey bbend,

I have only one advice...be fast, send it the very first day, all in one...the certificate and pay the money...and send the confirmation via email (I guess you get it back...but not sure since I got in...).

Norway is quite unusual on Defi so you do have quite some chance to succeed. Important it is to let the Defi team know, that you really are interested...there is many people wanting to go, but some of them have a special fascination...and if you prove to be one of them I think the spot will be yours.

But of course there is no guarantee...
Maybe I just was lucky and I wont be this year...but for sure I will try to get in again.

Ciao Michal.

PS: Lancellin is also great, but for europeans a bit far reach...:-(

Thanks for the info mim.

Yes it is probably very few if any Norwegians in this race so if that matters it is probably a good thing. Anyway, since I have not sailed this spot yet I think I will go down there on a trip first to see how I like the place,the people etc. Hopefully they will run this event "forever" so at one point I can join it.
