RYA announces continued trials for the Paralympic Classes


The trials in the 2.4mR (one-person keelboat), the SKUD-18 (two-person keelboat) and the Sonar (three-person keelboat) will continue with events to include the Rolex Miami Olympic Classes Regatta from 27 January-2 February 2008 and, if required, the Disabled/Open Midwinters at the St Petersburg Yacht Club, Florida (USA) from 28 February-2 March 2008.

The RYA’s Paralympic Selection Committee has determined that the trials will continue for a shortlist of sailors, namely: Female


2.4mR

Helena Lucas

Megan Pascoe

Sonar

Hannah Stodel

SKUD-18

Niki Birrell

Jackie Gay


Chris Atkins, Chairman of the RYA’s Paralympic Selection Committee, commented: “Skandia Team GBR’s sailors showed good potential during the IFDS World Disabled Sailing Championships – the first stage of the trials – earlier this year, but after coming away from the event empty-handed, we wanted to give our leading sailors more time to show the selectors that they’re capable of winning medals for Team GB at the Paralympic Games next year.

“By extending the trials process, the sailors will have another chance to prove their mettle against some tough international competition.”
