Entries open for Eric Twiname Youth and Junior Team Racing

The annual two day event will welcome teams from the Junior and Youth Class Associations, RYA Zones, clubs, schools and individual teams who will commence battle in the two separate events.

As one of the highlights of the RYA’s youth racing calendar, it is set to be very popular once again, providing the nation’s young sailors with the opportunity to develop their sailing skills and tactics whilst working as a team.

The Junior fleet will contest in RS Fevas and the Youth fleet Firefly’s in teams of six sailors racing in three boats (all boats are supplied).


Last year’s event was full-to-capacity, 288 sailors contested for the prestige of picking up the RYA Eric Twiname Team Racing Trophy. ‘Gingernut and Assorted Biscuits’ team won the Junior division and ‘420’ the Youth category.


Olivia Risk, Event Director said: “The RYA Eric Twiname Team Racing Championships is one of the most popular events in the Youth and Junior calendar. We always have a fantastic turnout and are hoping for similar this year.


“For many young racers this event gives them their first taste of a Team Racing Championships and is a great way of enhancing a sailor’s knowledge of the rules in a short course and exciting format. The event is usually oversubscribed so I would recommend entering as soon as possible.” 

To enter the 2015 RYA Eric Twiname Youth and Junior Team Racing Championships, Youth entries must be under the age of 19 as of 1st September 2015, whilst Junior team entries must be under the age of 16 as of 1st September 2015.
