The dates of the regatta are Feb 18-20, and the fee is $100. What if we don't speak Spanish, Dr._Loser? Will we still be able to "navigate" the regatta? :) Also, are there nearby hotels?

Sidebar: What is Spanish for "Starboard," demanding room at the mark, and "Protest!"?


Hello everyone !!!!!!!!
In February next year we have a great championship in Argentina!
We hope you come to know a Sudaka Country !!!!!!

Breaking news: Flood disaster at Buenos Aires on Febuary Fri 19th to Sat 20th

Hi all

Yesterday, we have seen on German TV news: Buenos Aires (B.A.) and Argentina in general got terrible big floods and damages caused by heavy rainstorms. 80 liter per m² in a few hours, the TV told us and we have seen pictures of B.A. in that inflatables for rescue drove through the streets (filled up "1 meter high" with rainwater) to catch the swimming people... B.A.'s town-authority in emergency switched off the electricity. No good news of B.A.!!

By luck I found a small videos equence (sorry, but comment is in German language. The news sequence of B.A. flood disaster starts aft a short commercial) of this above.
http://www.n-tv.de/mediathek/videos/panorama/Behoerden-schalten-Strom-ab-article739096.html

We at GER, and I guess also everyone at TLF, feel with our friends at B.A. and we hope all competitors and other participants/friends/families etc. of the South American Laser Championship are fine, as far it could be in such a terrible situation.

Take care, all over there at Rio De La Plata in the moment
and let us know here your actual situation (if you can)
