Squad Applications

  • Any sailors wishing to be considered for a Youth squad place must attend profiling.  Please visit our dedicated Youth Profiling page here which provides more information.  The dedicated page will also provide details of the sign up as and when this becomes available.
  • Please ensure you read the Notice of Selection regarding eligibility, including the indicators that have been set for the squad.  You can access the Notice of Selection for the relevant level of the pathway by clicking the relevant to the left of this page under 'Information' and then opt for 'Selection'. 
  • The RYA UK Laser 4.7 Squad is selected annually at the winter selection point in September and then reviewed in May.  Summer 2019 international support is decided at the May review point.  Sailors who wish to be considered at the review point must email: sarah.marjoram@rya.org.uk before the first summer review event (RYA UK Youth National Championships 12 April 2019), however this only applies to non squad sailors.  Sailors who are already part of the winter 2018/19 squad do not need to apply at the review point and will be notified via email if they have retained their place and to pay the summer training fees.
  • Please note that double handed sailors must apply using the same application, providing helm and crew details under the one application.  Please do not submit separate applications for helm and crew for one boat.  If offered a place, this will be per sailor, therefore acceptance must be done per sailor regardless of being double handed or single handed.
  • Applicants are normally notified within 2 weeks of the final indicator via email.
