Selection Series

The following events will form the Selection Series for 2021 Worlds/Europeans Teams:

1. Spring Series 1 - WPNSA (24th/25th April 2021)

2. Spring Series 2 - Warsash SC (8th/9th May 2021)

3. Spring Series 3 - Brixham SC (22nd/23rd May 2021)

Securing dates/venues to enable us to hold a Selection Series has been difficult.  

From our recent surveys to understand the level of interest in attending these international events, we know that we are currently over-subscribed, making a selection series necessary. We have asked for additional places but this request was turned down by the International 420 class association. 

We know that the timing of these events isn't ideal because of exams/assessments for GCSE/A Levels.  Additional complications in trying to arrange suitable dates is that each school appears to be holding their exams/assessments at different times.  This has made planning extremely difficult.  

In order to try to take into account sailors individual circumstances the Selection Committee (which is an independant committee) has revised the Selection Policy to provide for additional discards across the series.   In addition, if sailors wish to look for discretion they can do so, in line with the Selection Policy.  Any requests for discretion should be communicated to the Selectors as soon as possible by emailing them [email protected]

We encourage sailors to do their best to attend as many of the events as possible to give them the best opportunity to achieve their team goals.  




£95 per boat.
