British Youth Sailing Welsh Regional Championships 2020

Welcome to the BYS Welsh Regional Championships 2020

Due to the uncertainty of Covid-19 and the number of participants allowed in an organised activity in Wales (currently set at maximum of 30 persons) we have made the decision to split the Regional Junior Championships into 4 events.

  • 26-27th September Welsh National Sailing Academy, Plas Heli – Laser 4.7 / ILCA 4, Windsurfing
    • The age limit has been set so that Laser Radial/ ILCA 6 sailor’s can enter and race the Laser 4.7/ILCA 4
  • 26–27th September Neyland Yacht Club – RS Tera Sport and Pro
  • 26-27th September Pembrokeshire Performance Sailing Academy – Topper
  • 3rd-4th October Welsh National Sailing Academy, Plas Heli – Optimist
    • It was not possible to secure an appropriate venue on the original weekend and it was felt it would be a good opportunity for pre-event racing before the Optimist EOS 17-18th October.

Unfortunately, there isn’t the capacity at the available venues to be able to host the Youth classes this year and sadly this also means it is not possible host a Regatta/ OnBoard Fleet.

Entries are capped at 20 sailors at each venue, this is subject to review and it will be increased if possible.

We still recommend booking flexible accommodation or booking as late as possible incase the guidance changes. If RYA Cymru Wales need to cancel the event a full entry refund will be provided, however RYA Cymru Wales will not be liable for any other costs (e.g. accommodation, travel) .
