Selection policy for 2011 OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Sailing Team now available
Yachting Australia has released the policy for the selection and nomination of the 2011 OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Sailing Team to compete at the 2011 ISAF World Youth Sailing Championship.
The 2011 ISAF World Youth Sailing Championship will take place in Zadar, Croatia, from July 7 to 16 with racing taking place in Laser Radials for boys and girls, 420s for boys and girls, an open 29er class, RS:X for boys and girls and an open multihull class which will compete on the Sirena SL16.
To be eligible for selection in the OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Sailing Team interested sailors must be an Australian national, a member of a sailing club affiliated with a State of Territory Yachting Association, a current Yachting Australia Silver or Youth Member and be under the age of 19 on December 31 2011.
Yachting Australia has identified a number of nomination regattas which will be used to select the members of the 2011 OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Sailing Team.
For the Laser Radial boys and girls, the 29er open and the multihull open classes the nomination regattas will be their relevant Australian Class Championship and the OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Championship.
For the RS:X boys and girls classes selection will be made from results achieved at the OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Championship Bic Techno 293 event.
The selection events for the 420 boys and girls crews will be the OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Championships and the Australian 420 Class Championship unless Yachting Australia is notified in writing that a crew eligible for selection in the 2011 OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Sailing Team will be participating in the 420 World Championships in Argentina from 27 December 2010 until 5 January 2011.
Notification must be received by Yachting Australia no later than 29 October 2010. Should Yachting Australia receive notification from a crew eligible to participate in the 2011 Youth World Championships the selection event for the Australian Youth Sailing Team 420 crew will be the Australian 420 Class Championship only.
If such notification is only received from a boys crew then the selection events for the girls crew remain the 2011 OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Championships, 420 event and the 2011 Australian 420 Class Championship and vice versa. Yachting Australia will communicate the final selection events for the 420 class via the Yachting Australia website by 1 November 2010.
Yachting Australia will conduct a nomination point score for the events above, the results of which will form the basis for nomination and selection of the team members in the 2011 OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Team for the 2011 ISAF World Youth Sailing Championship.
The Nomination Point Score may also be used to select a Youth Development Squad. The members of this Squad may be invited to attend a training camp with the Australian Youth Sailing Team.
The 2011 OAMPS Insurance Broker Australian Youth Sailing Team Leader and Support Staff will be selected in February and March 2011. It is intended to advertise for these positions in late 2010 with details of the positions and application requirements to be posted on the Yachting Australia website.
