Information about the RYAS Spring Championship which will be hosted by Loch Venachar SC on 22/23 Apr with a note about the transition session.
This event is the first event in 2017 and kicks off the
second half for the 2016/17 Scottish Travellers Series which consists of the
RYAS Spring Championship (Traveller 4), Traveller 5 on 20/21 May at Peterhead
SC and Traveller 6 on 10/11 June at Loch Tummel SC.
The event is open to Optimist, Topper, Feva, Laser (4.7,
radial and standard rigs), 420 and 29er class dinghies. This is a racing event
although there will be coaches on hand to assist novice sailors in the
Optimist, Topper and Feva classes during the event. As the first junior and
youth event of the season this is a perfect event to get back into the swing of
racing after the winter and with the coach support is a great opportunity for
sailors to participate in their first traveller.
The event mini site including entry can be found by clicking here. The closing date for entries is Wednesday 12 April 2017.
On the Saturday afternoon after racing there will be a
session on transitioning for junior sailors thinking about which youth class
they might like to sail. This will be delivered by RYA Scotland with the Youth
Class Transition Coaches and the High Performance Manager on hand to answer
questions and youth class boats available to try. Please contact Tim Ellis
to let us know if you are keen to attend this session so that we can get an
idea of numbers.
You will need access to a boat to enter the event but RYA
Scotland has a limited number of Toppers which can be hired for the weekend.
Please contact Matt Toynbee
if this is of interest to you or you have any other questions about the event.
