The Laser Worlds in Germany can accommodate 180 boats max for the men's event. So far, 175 sailors have applied. But only 40 brand new boats are offered for charter. This implies that many will be forced to bring their own boat, or charter from another source. I imagine that the Measurer is going to be busy inspecting all those not so brand new boats; bring him/her some pilsner! PS: the charter fee (725 British Pounds) seems high to this non-European bystander.
