The RYA Scotland Winter Championships is an annual event that welcomes all Junior and Youth sailors to get racing and see how their winter training has been getting on.
Christmas wouldn't be the same without the RYA Scotland Winter Champs. Given the current Covid-19 situation, we are not able to run the event in its normal format. However, over the weekends of 12/13 Dec and 19/20 Dec 2020 we will run a series of mini Christmas Regattas across the various classes in different venues across Scotland.
The intention is to have small scale sprint racing run by coaches over the course of one day in a venue as accessible as possible.
Some venues are still being confirmed as we get more of an idea of what the restrictions are likely to be over those weekends. The plan will be for Optimists (19 Dec - venue tbc), Toppers (13 Dec - Helensburgh SC), Laser/ILCA (19 Dec - venue tbc), 420 (12 Dec - Helensburgh SC), 29er (20 Dec - venue tbc) and Techno (date and venue tbc).
There will obviously be a fair dose of Christmas cheer with fancy dress and Christmas decorations for boats strongly encouraged.
