Which Zone do I belong to?

Windsurfers, Fevas, Cadets and Laser 4.7s please look at Zone Championships main page to see which venues are hosting these classes.

To decide which Zone you are please look at the list below

The zone you apply for depends on where you live or the address of the club you are a member of. For example: Someone in London whose home club is in Berkshire may apply for the SE zone on a residential basis or the S zone because of their sailing club. However a person can only apply for one zone.
 

 

Realignment of RYA Zones

Following a review of the RYA Racing zones it has been decided that the current North and West Zones should be realigned and will now be known as North and Midland Zones. The makeup of the new North and Midlands Zones are detailed below using the current county boundaries.

In addition, the county of Buckinghamshire will be included as part of the Southern Zone 

It is intended that for the 2015 - 2016 Zone Squad selection, the new zones will take effect. A new RYA Zone Squad Selection Policy will be issued within the next few months.

During this next selection, and for this year only, sailors whose regions have been realigned so that they fall now into a different region, should contact their RYA High Performance Manager for help and advice.

Sailors looking to apply for Zone Squad, for winter 2015/16, should apply for and sail in the indicator series of the Zone Squad that either:

 

a. Falls within the zone of their primary place of residence, or

b. Falls within the zone of their primary Sailing Club.

 

If a sailor’s primary place of residence and primary Sailing Club fall within different zones then he/she may initially choose which Zone Squad to apply for and therefore which indicator series to participate in.

Sailing Clubs will be aligned to the new North and Midland Zones based on the Sailing Club location.
