Entry for the Late Summer Championships

The Late Summer event forms part of the IOCA Summer Series that is used for winter training squad selection (the other events are the Inlands and the End of Seasons). Capacity at Poole Yacht Club is limited to 180 main fleet sailors only. For more information on being selected for a Squad have a look at the 2018 - 2019 RYA/IOCA (UK) Squad Selection Policy document on the right under Selection Policies.

As such we encourage entry to this event if you are hoping to qualify for a national level winter squad.

You should probably not enter if you have not yet participated in an RYA zone squad or Home Country Squad, and it is probably not the event to switch to main fleet for the first time.

Please refer to the entry and eligibility criteria in the NOR in order to gain a ranking to quality for a national level winter squad.
