RYA Youth National Championships schedule gets the green light    
Wed, 27 Mar 2013

The RYA can confirm that the RYA Youth National Championships 2013, set to take place at Largs Sailing Club between the 30 March – 5 April, is scheduled to go ahead despite last week’s heavy snowfall across the South West of Scotland.

With over 350 competitors entered and ready to embark on the RYA’s premier youth racing event of 2013, the biggest entry the event has ever seen whilst hosted at Largs Sailing Club, event organisers are urging sailors, volunteers and everyone attending the regatta to come prepared with the weather in mind and to pack cold weather clothing and the correct sailing attire.

Parents and competitors are asked to plan their journeys well in advance and to take extra care when travelling to Scotland.

The current weather forecast for next week is for a light North Easterly wind but with temperatures remaining low for the first part of the regatta. RYA event organisers are asking sailors and volunteers to come prepared as it is intended to complete the full schedule of races across the five days of racing.

RYA Volvo National Youth Squad sailors are reminded that they receive a generous discount from the RYA Youth Racing Programmes official clothing supplier Henri Lloyd who have a quiver of clothing which will enable sailors to perform in the most extreme conditions and keep parents and volunteers warm and comfortable afloat and ashore.

Duncan Truswell, RYA Youth Racing Manager, commented: 'The conditions up in Largs are improving all the time, the forecast looks increasingly benign and we are really looking forward to delivering a great event, witnessing some quality racing at one of the UK’s finest venues.'

Tim Hall, RYA Competitions Manager, added: 'The safety and wellbeing of competitors and volunteers going afloat is our highest priority, but as the primary purpose of the event is to select sailors to represent GBR in international teams, we expect people to come prepared to race despite low temperatures. We will be planning to race in the prevalent conditions, which on the basis of current forecasts is likely to include low temperatures and therefore we urge everyone coming to Largs to dress appropriately.'

Racing will be held for boys in Laser Standards, girls and boys in Laser Radials and Neil Pryde RS:X 8.5 windsurfers, and for all-boy, all-girl or mixed crews in 420s, 29ers and Spitfire catamarans.
