Sail-World.com : Commodores’ Cup - Notice of Selection available online

Commodores’ Cup - Notice of Selection available online

Brewin Dolphin Commodores’ Cup 2012, organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club, is being held in Cowes from 21st to 28th July 2012.

The RYA are delighted to announce that the Notice of Selection for teams to represent RYA Team GBR at the Brewin Dolphin Commodores’ Cup 2012 has now been published and is available to view on the RYA website.

The event is one of the most prestigious events on the international yachting calendar culminating in a tough mix of inshore and offshore racing across a tense seven-day racing programme on the testing waters of the Solent.

The RYA are urging interested parties to highlight their interest in representing RYA Team GBR at the 2012 regatta as soon as possible as there will be a maximum of four teams being entered; Team GBR Red, Blue, White and Black. The Offshore Group of the RYA has decided that three teams will be selected by a Selection Committee and one by RYA Scotland (conditions apply, see Notice of Selection).

There will be a meeting for owners/charterers discussing the Selection process who are interested in being selected for RYA GBR teams competing in the Brewin Dolphin Commodores’ Cup 2012. The meeting will take place on Monday 9th January 2012 at the British Olympic Association offices in Charlotte Street, London at 18:30 (Please book your place by the 3rd January 2012).

The meeting will include a presentation about the event itself from Eddie Warden, CEO of the RORC; the Selectors will review key points from the Notice of Selection and answer any questions and previous winners from RYA Team GBR will be there to talk about their past experiences of competing in the Commodores’ Cup.

The RORC have introduced a change to the IRC rating band to encourage more entries. The smallest boats will have a minimum rating of 1.020 and the fastest boats a maximum rating of 1.230. Three boats can be chosen from this rating band with the proviso that only one boat in the team may rate 1.150 or above.

John Derbyshire, RYA Racing Manager/Performance Director, commented: 'The Brewin Dolphin Commodores’ Cup 2012 is set to be a fantastic event which will attract highly competitive teams from several nations. In 2008 RYA Team GBR won the event and we were very unfortunate at the 2010 event, so this year our aim is to pick four teams who have the potential to win the event this time around and at future events.'

The Selection Trial events have been confirmed for RYA Team GBR:
- Offshore: the RORC Morgan Cup starting on 5th May 2012. A 24-36 hour race round buoys in the Channel, starting and finishing in the Solent.
- Inshore: a Commodores’ Cup rating band class in the Vice Admirals Cup on 18th -20th May 2012 organised by the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club in Cowes.

For more information regarding the Notice of Selection or to confirm attendance at the Selection process meeting please contact Jessica.Beecher(@)rya.org.uk or call 02380 604167.
