Up and coming Olympic class sailors will have the chance to compete head to head with Britain’s elite to win lottery funding for participation on the International dinghy circuit. Stephen Park, RYA Olympic manager commented: ‘The Holt RYA National Ranking System ensures the ongoing future of Great Britain’s Olympic class success and provides a vital opportunity for newcomers and experienced Olympic class sailors alike to compete at the highest level on home waters.”
The first event kicks off in Pwhelli, Wales on April 6-7, for the Europe, 470, Mistral, Finn and 49er. Further meetings will be held at Hayling Island, Weymouth, Rutland and Warsash.
