More than 250 youngsters from across the country will head to Oxford this weekend for two days of competition at the RYA Eric Twiname Youth and Junior Team Racing Championships.

Hosted by Oxford Sailing Club at Farmoor Reservoir, and in conjunction with the Eric Twiname Trust, sailors will compete in Firefly and Feva dinghies for the prestigious titles.

Interest in the annual event has been high with both the under 16s and under 19s categories full. Twenty-eight teams made up of 112 sailors will race in the junior section, with 138 sailors in 23 teams in the youth division.

The regatta, named after famous sailor, author and journalist Eric Twiname, has seen many members of the current British Sailing Team compete in previous editions such as 470 sailors Eilidh McIntyre and Amy Seabright, Laser Radial sailor George Povall and current women's match racing world champion Kate Macgregor.

"The RYA Eric Twiname Youth and Junior Team Racing Championships is another event on our calendar that produces sailing of the highest quality," said RYA Youth Racing Manager Mark Nicholls.

"The interest this year has shown us this is an event not to be missed and has drawn teams from all over the country

"For me it is so reassuring that our youth and junior events attract so many keen sailors, and this championships is no different. I'm looking forward to seeing who comes out on top."
