Footy Gold Cup 2014 entry will open soon.

Hello to all the International Footy world.
The entry list for the 2014 Gold cup hosted in the UK this year will shortly be opening.
So dust off your fastest Footy and get it race ready because this will be best Gold cup race since the last one :wink: and you could make it even better.
Can we get the winners from 2007-2013 all racing at the same time? Bill, Graham, Marcus, Phil are you coming? Because I’ll be there…
Can we have more entrants than Wroclaw?
Can we reach higher heights than Sestrierre?
Can we get stronger winds than Birkenhead?
Can we get even closer races than Le Harve.
And lets bring more juniors than ever before and ensure the future of this sport. The cheap entry fee means that families wont cost a small fortune.
And if we can all this, do you want to miss it??

Hi Rob
I am definitely planning to be in Milton Keynes for the Footy Gold Cup and will be hoping for more wind than Konstanz but may be not too much more than Birkenhead!
Looking forward to seeing you all again.

Hi Phil it will be great to see you again.
The entry form is now online at:
As we are really keen to encourage juniors we have instigated a “Family” entry price of £25 (the same as 1 adults and 1 child) so it pays to bring more folks with you !
We are still arranging accommodation and Saturday evening event so expect more details soon.

We hope to arrive in the UK and participate to an enyoyable and fantastic footy meeting and compare our “creations” with the best skippers and boats in the world.

Bye bye

Wow… nice…
Unfortunately in my country who enjoyed the hobby is still not much.
I am one of the fans of this hobby, but do not know and are not skilled in making the boat itself.
Where should I start on this forum to be able to start to learn this hobby?

There seems to be no audio for the you-tube video, even though there seems to be interviews of some of the participants. Is this a you-tube problem, or my computer acting up?
