The J/70 UK National Championships will be taking place as part of the Key Yachting J-Cup in The Solent from the 30th of June to the 2nd of July. A new perpetual trophy will be awarded for the first time in memory of David Haw.

The David Haw Youth Trophy will be awarded at future J/70 UK National Championships to the top scoring team where half of the crew are under 25 years of age at the start of the year.

"The award of the David Haw Youth Trophy is fantastic," commented David's parents Richard and Gill Haw. "We are so proud and humbled that you are using his name to promote and encourage young sailors into the sport, which is so, so worthwhile."
