Entries are open for the RYA Eric Twiname Youth and Junior Team Racing Championships to be held from 12-13 October 2019 at the Oxford Sailing Club.

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

The annual two day event will welcome teams from the Junior and Youth Class Associations, RYAZones, 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 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 as well as Laser Radial sailor George Povall.

"The RYAEric Twiname Youth and Junior Team Racing Championships is always an event that has great interest and great racing" said RYA Youth Racing Manager Mark Nicholls.

"The event attracts sailors from all over the country and it's another weekend of top class youth and junior racing that shows how much the next generation love our sport."
