The BKA 2019/20 applications are now open. They will close on 22nd September at 23.59.
You need to have a British passport and be available to train and race in the UK. You need to be able to pay the squad fee (£360, inc vat) which helps pay for the training weekends, boats, coaches, lecture rooms and clothing.

To race at a high level, sailors need to be physically and mentally fit. The programmes include fitness sessions aiming at improving your personal fitness; please contact us if you think this could be an issue.
