Young sailors aged 8 to 18 will soon be invited to join the junior team racing event of the year. Whether registering individually or as part of their Junior and Youth Class Associations or sailing club teams, this is the perfect opportunity to showcase their skills and engage in friendly competition.
With a maximum of 24 youth and 48 junior teams, the championships promise an exciting racing calendar highlight. Unlike traditional fleet racing regattas, this event features groups of young sailors sharing RS Feva and Firefly dinghies, executing on-water changeovers in thrilling 3v3 competitions in Fireflys for the youth category, and 2v2 competitions in Fevas for the junior category.
To ensure a more suitable level of competition, this year's championships will also introduce age group categories. The Youth category in Fireflys, is for those under 19, while the Junior category in Fevas, will be split into U17 and U15. However, under 17 participants can still opt to compete in the Youth fleet, and under 15s have the chance to sail with 15 or 16-year-olds in the U17 Junior fleet.
So get ready for a bigger and better event than ever before. We can't wait to see you and your young sailors out on the water 7-8 October 2023 at Oxford Sailing Club, ready for an unforgettable championship!
Sign-ups will be opening soon. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions by emailing email@example.com.
