Hi all
Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances the RYA Volvo RS:X National Youth Squad Primary Indicator 1 has had to be changed in the upcoming 2010/11 RYA Volvo RS:X National Youth Squad selection process for the Main NYS entry point for 2010 (September/October) – Appendix A in selection policy.
The RS:X Primary Indicator 1 is now the RYA Olympic Classes National Ranker at WPNSA on 18th & 19th September 2010 (instead of the UKWA Cup 5 at Christchurch on 18th & 19th September). You can enter online via the RYA Racing Events website: Please note that the entry fee is cheaper if you enter online by Monday 13th September.
For further information please see the selection information on the RYA Website.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Kind regards,
