J/80 German Youth Training

J/80 women's sailing team - training(Berlin, Germany)- The national class in Germany is working hard on promoting youth sailing in J/80s and broadening the appeal of one-design racing, with a focus also on preparing for the Worlds Marseilles.

After the very successful youth development program that was introduced in 2012 for the first time, the J/80 Class in Germany has decided again to promote and provide boats for youth for the 2013 season! Here's is how it works:

"To promote Junior J/80 sailing, the German Class Association is providing up to 3 boats with a charter fee of 500 EUR each, used to support the participation of the youth in German and international regattas.

Any German J/80 crew can apply, but must meet certain qualifications- 25 years old maximum, student in school/ university, and members of the J/80 Class.  Applications may be submitted informally to the Board of the J80 Class Association and must be received by April 30th."
