Time is running out to enter two of the most important events in the team racing calendar - the RYA/BUSA Women's Team Racing Championship and the RYA National Team Racing Championship.

The 2020 Women's Team Racing Championship returns to West Kirby Sailing Club, Wirral, on February 22 and 23, and the discount for early entry ends on January 15.

The regatta, raced in Firefly dinghies, is the country's premiere team racing event solely for women, and will see crews look to dethrone 2019 champions Oxford.

The National Team Racing Championship, hosted by Bough Beech Sailing Club in Edenbridge, Kent, will see up to 24 teams go head to head in Fireflies for the Prince Philip Trophy.

Held on the weekend of March 14 and 15, the event will see four flights of boats provided, with 12 umpires guaranteeing racing is of the highest level.

High winds prevented the 2019 regatta from taking place - so the stakes are even higher this year.

The entry deadline for the regatta is February 2.
