The 2018 RYA North East Youth Championships - also known as The Big One! - will take place over the weekend of November 3-4.
The event will again be hosted by Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club and managed by the
RYA North East Regional Volunteer Team, bringing together youth classes for a weekend
of racing and socialising.
Last year's inaugural event for 420, 29er, RS200 and Laser fleets
was summed up as a "celebration of youth sailing" and had incredibly
positive feedback from the sailors. The aim is to build on this momentum in 2018!
The RYA North East Regional Volunteer Team is keen to promote
youth sailing and the event is designed to bring together the region's ever-growing number of up and coming sailors for a weekend of championship-quality racing on their doorstep.
Sailors from across the region and beyond are invited to take part and entries are welcomed from both RYA Pathway Classes and also other classes with a strong youth presence, such as the RS200 and RS Aero, which can provide a fleet entry of at least six boats.
Take a look at the fantastic photos of the event taken by Paul Hargreaves Photography in 2017 and check out the results at Sailwave. Further details for the second edition of the RYA North East Youth Championships will be published soon - The Big One is back in 2018!
