by ISAF on 9 Jan 2014
. .
The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) is inviting applications to the ISAF Athlete Participation Programme for the 2014 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship.

The ISAF Athlete Participation Programme (APP) was created in 2002 and assists athletes with attending the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship by offering coaching support and financial subsidies towards the entry fee and travel costs. The World Youth Sailing Trust provides a Championship coach. The APP is targeted at sailors from nations in Subscription Categories 1 and 2.

Priority will be given for new countries and for countries that have not participated in the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship during the last two years.

Thanks to APP funding, sailors from the Cook Islands, Cuba, El Salvador, Serbia, Botswana and Paraguay have been able to compete at the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship.

The APP allows athletes, via their Member National Authority to apply for support in the following ways:

Event Coaching and Support: Athletes who are not able to travel with a team leader or coach are able to apply for coaching support. The on-site Championship coach will be available for pre and post race briefings and other essential event support.

Entry Fee Subsidy: Athletes may apply for a subsidy towards the event entry fee.

Travel Subsidy: Athletes may apply for a subsidy towards their travel expenses in order to attend the Championship.

All ISAF Member National Authorities have been sent the ISAF APP Application Form. The form must be returned to the ISAF Secretariat by 17:00 UTC on 28 February 2014. If you would like further information please contact the Competitions Team at the ISAF Secretariat - click here to send an email.

The 2014 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship will take place in Tavira, Portugal from 12-19 July 2014.
