Entries are now open online for the RYA Eric Twiname Youth and Junior Team Racing Championships 2018 that will see over 200 sailors descend on Oxford Sailing Club, Farmoor Reservoir, on the 13-14 October 2018.

The annual two day event will welcome teams from the Junior and Youth Class Associations, RYA Zones, clubs, schools and individual teams to commence battle across the two separate events.

As one of the highlights of the RYA's youth racing calendar, it is set to be very popular once again, providing the nation's young sailors with the opportunity to develop their sailing skills and tactics whilst working as a team.

The Junior fleet will sail RS Feva's in four-boat team racing, while the Youth fleet will race Firefly's in teams of six racing in three boats with all of the boats for the event supplied.

Last year's event was an exciting display of sailors contesting the prestigious RYA Eric Twiname Team Racing Trophy with 'Norwich School' taking the Junior division and 'Sevenoaks A' the Youth category.

Olivia Risk, Event Director, said: "The RYA Eric Twiname Team Racing Championships is one of the most popular events in the Youth and Junior calendar. We always have a fantastic turnout and are hoping for similar this year.

"For many young racers this event gives them their first taste of a Team Racing Championships and is a great way of enhancing a sailor's knowledge of the rules in a short course and exciting format. The event is usually oversubscribed so I would recommend entering as soon as possible."

To enter the 2018 RYA Eric Twiname Youth and Junior Team Racing Championships, Youth entries must be under the age of 19 as of 1 September 2018, whilst Junior team entries must be under the age of 16 as of 1 September 2018.

Deadline for entry is 28 September 2018 and entries will be accepted on a first come, first served basis and only confirmed once payment has been received. Maximum entry for the event will be 24 teams consisting of six sailors in the Youth event and four sailors in the Junior event.
