Mitsubishi Youth Nationals

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailThe Mitsubishi Youth Nationals is being hosted by the NYC and the RStGYC and runs from the 29th April to 2nd May.  Over 300 sailors will compete in seven different classes.  The NYC will host the 420s, Fevas, Toppers and Championship Optimists.  The Optimist trials will be hosted by the RStGYC along with Laser Radial, Laser 4.7 and SL16’s. This event is crucial for all competitive junior sailors as it is the deciding event for the International Youth Sailing event.  It is being organised very much as a ‘dry run’ for the ISAF Youth Worlds to be held in Dun Laoghaire in July 2012. The Media Centre and the Jury for the Mitsubishi event will be hosted at the NYC and the Club will also be responsible for holding the prizegiving so it is going to be a very busy weekend allround! We will also be looking for plenty of volunteers both onshore and out on the race courses! Training clinics for all NYC junior competing in the Mitsubishi event will be run for Lasers, Toppers and Optimists between 19th and 21st April in the Club, anyone interested in signing up for these clinics should contact Mary in the Office
