Countdown to entry for RYA nationals

Sailors still to enter the 2009 RYA Volvo Youth National Championships and Trials have until 29 March to get their entries in.

Great Britain’s most promising young sailors will have the chance to show off their talents in front of a Royal audience after confirmation that Princess Anne will be attending the Championships at Largs Sailing Club next month.

Around 250 of the country’s best Youth (19 and under) dinghy racers and windsurfers will converge on the West Coast of Scotland for five days between Monday 13 and Friday 17 April to do battle at what is regarded as British Youth sailing’s premier annual racing event.

Having previously attended the RYA Youth Nationals at Largs in 2005, Anne, President of the Royal Yachting Association, will again return to the venue to see the latest crop of talented British sailors coming through the ranks on Wednesday 15 April.
