2021 Spring Series 2
8th - 9th May 2021
UPDATE - 1st April 2021
We are pleased to say that entry will open at 6.00pm today (Thursday 1st April 2021). We don't have an entry limit on numbers but would encourage you to sign up as soon as possible as this helps us with event planning.
Recent changes to the Rules of Sailing means that the NOR will look slightly different. Please familiarise yourself with the NOR ahead of the event.
Warsash have kindly organised volunteers to fulfil the majority of the on water official water support positions. But we will still need your help. Details of what positions we need help with will be provided shortly. If you are able to help please email Sharon ([email protected]) to sign up.
Full event information including registration, tally etc will be provided closer to the event.
If you are a new helm to the Class and don't have your own Bow Number please contact Sharon ([email protected]). You will need your bow number for your entry.
We plan to use the following events to 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.
