These awards celebrate the achievements of young people in the sport whether it’s on the racecourse, volunteering, instructing, coaching or overcoming adversity.
“The vision is to broaden the existing RYA Youth Awards to better promote and recognise the amazing achievements that take place within sailing, windsurfing and powerboating which, more importantly, inspire others both on the racecourse and elsewhere within boating activity” explains RYA Director of Sport Development Alistair Dickson.
“We’re really excited to have Musto on board to help us do that and to promote these incredible stories.”
“Musto has long supported sailors from the beginning of their sailing careers, all the way to the pinnacle of the sport” explained Nick Houchin, Head of Marketing at Musto.
“The quality and durability of Musto clothing affords sailors of all levels the confidence to push themselves and flourish on the water, safe in the knowledge that their kit won’t let them down. The RYA Regional Youth Awards is a really rewarding partnership, supporting grassroots sailing and championing youngsters destined to be game-changers within the sport.”
The 10 winners of the 2020 RYA Musto Regional Youth Awards will be revealed at the RYA Dinghy Show on Sunday 01 March at 13.15 on the Great Hall Stage. The awards will be presented by RYA Chairman Chris Preston and the British Sailing Team’s John Gimson and Anna Burnet who will fly the flag for Great Britain in the Nacra17 this summer in Tokyo.
Along with their families, winners will also be invited to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime sailing experience at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy with the British Sailing Team.
