One lucky young sailor will win the title of the Barton Marine Rising Star, an inspiring campaign launched at this year's RYA Dinghy Show on the 29th February - 1st March 2020. The recipient will be awarded with an exciting support and equipment package to help their personal sailing development and help boost their racing aptitude to the next level.

Open to all passionate sailors between the ages of 12 and 20 who are engaged in dinghy or one design keel boat racing in the UK, keen applicants can enter the Barton Rising Star competition by filling in the entry form and submitting a 2 minute video explaining their love for sailing. This lucky individual will be a UK ambassador to new and young sailors who want to expand their sailing skills and opportunities.

What is awarded?

  • The title of Barton Rising Star for a minimum of 12 months
  • Full complement of Barton equipment for your boat throughout the 12 months
  • Barton branded clothing and accessories from a well-known yachting brand
  • Go-Pro Camera & accessories
  • Social media support
  • Barton Mentorship to help identify and achieve personal goals and objectives

As a Barton brand ambassador you will be expected to create a short but regular diary about your experiences and activities on the water, review the Barton products supplied for your use, attend agreed industry events to support Barton (expenses paid) and to promote the Barton brand and equipment range with sailing peers. It is a unique opportunity to enhance your C.V. through taking part in your favourite sport.

The Rising Star Award also aims to enhance awareness of the winner as a competitive sailor and provide further exposure within the Barton business and leisure marine industry and assist with a future sailing career or vocation.
