Andrew Baker, Performance Manager at RYA NI commented: “Our annual Youth Championships is a major event in the Youth Sailing calendar and for many their first experience of a larger event. Whether a sailor turns up as the favourite to win or it’s their first time on a racecourse, the event really delivers something for all young sailors in NI.

“It is probably the biggest event we run alongside our clubs, at times it can be logistically challenging and demanding on volunteer resources but ultimately demonstrates what can be achieved when everyone plays their part and gets involved.”

RYA NI is also excited to announce a new headline sponsor for the event in F10 Marine. F10 Marine is an online boat shop that offers a wide range of products for boating enthusiasts and provides quality items to enhance the boating experience and cater to diverse needs.

Damian Goodman from F10 Marine commented: “F10Marine is proud to announce its sponsorship of the RYA Northern Ireland Youth Championships, scheduled to take place in September. This significant partnership reflects F10Marine's commitment to supporting youth development in the field of sailing and its dedication to promoting water sports in the region.

“By supporting this event, F10Marine is actively contributing to the growth of the sailing community and empowering young sailors to pursue their passion for the sport.”

On the announcement of the sponsorship, Greg Yarnall, CEO of RYA NI said: “It is fantastic to have a company like F10 Marine on board to support the RYA NI Youth Championships, we would like to thank F10 Marine for their support, and we hope it will be the start of a long lasting partnership between the two organisations that can enable us to further develop sailing and boating in Northern Ireland.”
