38 420s have assembled at Pwllheli for the 2022 RYA Youth Nationals. Racing starts today and concludes on Friday.

This is the concluding selection event for the UK 420 class summer teams for the Junior European Championships in Portugal and the World Championships in Hungary. The RYA will also select a male/mixed team and a female team aged under 19 to represent GBR at the World Sailing Youth Sailing Championships in The Hague in July.

If you want a form guide the best advice comes from the latest UK rolling rankings, published today, which count the last five UK 420 class meetings including the first two selection events.

It is very tight at the top, it is going to tricky week for everyone. Good luck and fair winds to all the sailors.

Some of the sailors are competing in their first Youth Nationals having recently joined the class whilst the oldest and most experienced are doing their 3rd.
