Entries are flowing in for the OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Championship 2008 to be held from 6 10 January, 2008 at Frankston Yacht Club, Victoria.
Numerous competitors from the 2007 Championship have already submitted their entries including Australian and World Youth Champion Gabrielle King (Laser Radial).
If youth sailors were thinking of entering the Australian Youth Championship but havent submitted their entry, I would recommend them to do so, it really is a lot of fun!.
Coaches supporting athletes at the event must advise Yachting Australia of their participation before the 19th December 2007 by completing the form available at www.yachting.org.au/youthchamps. Coaches and Boats that have not registered by the deadline will not be able to enter the course area.
The Championship includes events for Laser 4.7 (Girls and Boys), Laser Radial (Girls and Boys), Laser Full Rig (Boys), 420 (Girls, Boys & Mixed), BIC Techno 293 Sailboard (Girls and Boys) and the Hobie 16 (Open).
The OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Championship 2008 is the selection event for the OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Sailing Team. A Team of up to 10 competitors will compete at the Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship to be held in Aarhus, Demark from 10th 19th July, 2008.
