Exciting news! We're launching a competition for some lucky youth pairings to win free entry to the 2023 Nationals and a boat to use. We will draw a new winner for every 5 entries that we get - so the more entries the more winners!

All entrants will get 50% off the Nationals Entry fee.

The championships will be held 6-11 August 2023 at Eastbourne Sovereign Sailing Club.

Please share this post with any youth pairings you think may like to try a Scorpion (youth is under 21 on the 6th August 2023).

And we already have a first winner: Michael and Daniel who usually sail an RS200 and are coming over from Ireland for the event.
