ISAF Youth Sailing Worlds - 30 young sailors awarded APP funding

by ISAF on 26 Apr 2012
. .
The 42nd Four Star Pizza ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships are being held in Dublin, Ireland this year. The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) is pleased to announce that 30 competitors from 12 nations have been approved to receive funding from the Athlete Participation Programme (APP) so they can enter into the event.

Since 2002 APP funding has enabled over 150 sailors the chance to compete at the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships.

From the 30 sailors chosen to benefit from APP funding in Dublin, Ireland there will be 12 sailors in the Laser Radial Boys, seven in the Laser Radial Girls, two in the 420 Girls, two 420 Boys, four RS:X Boys, one RS:X girl and two sailors from Hong Kong in the SL16.

Of the 2012 recipients the Youth Worlds welcomes back previous recipients Nadja Horwitz (CHI), Stephanie Devaux-Lovell (LCA) and Alejandro Monllor (PUR) who will benefit from the same support again after receiving funding for the 2011 ISAF Youth Worlds in Zadar, Croatia.

The APP has given developing sailing nations the chance and opportunity to represent their nation at the premier regatta for youth sailors. Sailors from Botswana, El Salvador, Andorra, St. Lucia and Paraguay have all been given the opportunity to compete on a level playground with developed and experienced sailing nations.

Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, Ireland will host the 42nd edition of the Four Star Pizza ISAF Youth Worlds and the sailors on APP will be able to compete in Dublin with subsidised travel and entry.

They will also benefit from the coaching of Hugh Styles, World Youth Sailing Trust coach, who will guide the athletes.

How It Works: The Athlete Participation Programme allows athletes, via their MNA, to apply for support in a number of different ways:

Event Coaching/Support: So those athletes which attend the event without a coach or team leader can apply for coaching support.

Entry Fee Subsidy: Applicants can apply for help with the €900 entry fee. They can either ask for help with the whole amount or part of the cost of the entry fee.

Travel Subsidy: To assist in covering the expenses of the athlete's travel, you may apply for a Travel Subsidy to cover either part or the entire cost of their travel. ISAF will reimburse the cost of the expenses upon receipt of the necessary travel ISAF website

Can World Sailing learn from dear old Oz?
Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint Some time ago now, Sail-World proposed that ISAF had a really good opportunity at hand when it morphed into World Sailing (WS). Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint, when you could bring out the jackhammers and do a proper reno??? A call was issued for 200,000 sets of goggles and earmuffs to be supplied and for the real work to be commenced.

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphones while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
