HISC Youth Invited to SailGP Cowes Event - Application Details

The SailGP F50 multihulls are due to hit Cowes on the next leg of their amazing tour, having just finished the New York Event.

HISC, along with other BYS recognised clubs, have been invited to send 2 sailors, (a girl and boy) to take part in a day’s training then a race immediately before the main event when the F50s take the stage on both Saturday and Sunday.

The sailors also have the opportunity to meet the SailGP sailors.

Note that the Deadline for applications is Monday 8 July 2019.

The youth racing will be in nine matched RS14 cats provided by RS Sailing.

Sailors must be available for all three days and aged between 13 – 15 (Age U16 on 31 Dec 2019) and need to be of at least zone squad sailing standard (competent racers).

You need to apply as a pair – we will not be matching boys and girls, its important you are happy to sail together.

Meals are provided by the RYA, (Lunch and snacks) but no accommodation. The RYA would require an adult to bring and collect the sailors each day but will not be needed to stay on site all day.

How to apply:

Please submit one application for the pair (boy and girl)

For you to have the chance at representing our club at this amazing event you need to submit an application detailing your individual sailing and racing experience but also explain how you meet all five of the British Youth Sailing Values and Behaviours, in no more than 150 words.
