At the beginning of June, World Sailing announced the launch of the 2020 eSailing Nation's Cup; an international knockout tournament which will see nations across the globe battle it out for the eSailing Nation's Cup.

The RYA can now confirm that it has finalised the 2020 RYA eSailing Nation's Cup GBR Team selection criteria and over the coming months will be looking to select a team of highly skilled and talented eSailors in the line with the criteria detailed within the Notice of Race.

The 10 strong team will be selected from the results at the GBR eSailing National Championship results in September and, in line with the Notice of Race for the Nation's Cup, ensuring that the team consists of:-

  • At least two Certified eSailors (Olympic and professional sailors, World standard eSailors)
  • Four competitors from the RYA eSailing Spring Club or Class Championships
  • At least one from each gender
  • Four eSailors selected on merit according to the eSailing National Championship results

"With the success of the RYA eSailing club and class events along with other fantastic eSailing events where sailors from all over the UK have been honing their skills, we can hope to take a very strong GBR team to the eSailing Nation's Cup", commented Celia Edgington, RYA Shows and Promotions Manager.

The RYA GBR eSailing Nations Cup Team will be selected on 22 September 2020, after which the Team will first compete in fleet regattas for seeding purposes which could see up to 50 boats and five teams competing in each regatta.

From there the team will have to battle through the first round knockouts, quarter and semi-finals before hopefully challenging for the winners title in the eSailing Nations Cup final to be held on the 02 November, when the World Champion National Team will be crowned.

As well as claiming the title of top eSailing nation in the World, the winning team will presented with the eSailing Nations Cup trophy and a host of other prizes aimed at helping develop eSailing in the winning country.
