RYA Youth Nationals Update
The RYA Youth Nationals take place this year at WPNSA over the School Easter holidays, between the 12th and the 19th April. For the first time, 2 single handed junior classes have been added this year – Laser 4.7 and Topper.
Eligibility to sail a Topper at the Youth Nationals has been extended to include all members of the ITCA National 5.3 squad, as well as members of the RYA Topper UK Junior Girls Squad and RYA Topper UK Junior Boys Squad. Provided that sailors are current members of one of these squads, they can enter online via the RYA website by clicking here.
Transitioning sailors can if they prefer, enter in their new class. Full details of the supported classes and entry process can again be found on the relevant page on the RYA website
For all sailors, don't forget that you only have until Sunday 17th March to avoid having to pay a late entry fee.
