The 2021 Eric Twiname Youth & Junior Team Racing Championships will be held on 9th & 10th October 2021.

Eric Twiname Youth & Junior Team Racing

The countries biggest and best team racing event for youth and junior sailors.
 

The iconic Eric Twiname Youth & Junior Team Racing Championships, organised by the RYA in conjunction with the Eric Twiname Trust, sees youth & junior sailors come together for a weekend of high octane team racing.

Unlike conventional fleet racing regattas, the Eric Twiname Youth & Junior Team Racing Championships sees groups of young sailors sharing RS Feva and Firefly dinghies, carrying out on-water changeovers.

One race typically lasts around ten minutes but each team usually gets to do between six and 16 races during the regatta, with an approximate 250 races scheduled over a weekend.As well as being an exciting form of sailing in its own right, team racing helps to sharpen up many useful fleet racing skills, especially close boat on boat tactics and is also a great transitional step between fleet racing and match racing.

The Notice of Race for 2021 has now been published and can be found through our Events pages.

The event is scheduled to be hosted by Oxford Sailing Club at Farmoor Resevoir on 9th & 10th October 2021 and 8th & 9th October 2022.
