Waszp SailGP Qualifier
This qualifying regatta is to select 2 male and 2 female U20 Waszp sailors to represent NZ at the Sydney SailGP Inspire Racing programme at the end of Feb 2020.
Selection trial -
Sat 8th Feb 2020
Sun 9th Feb 2020 (reserve day)
For those selected, support will be provided with boats and accommodation to attend the Sydney SailGP Inspire Racing programme in late Feb 2020 alongside the Sydney SailGP event. A fantastic opportunity!
The Inspire Racing programme provides a unique opportunity to connect ambitious young sailors with the pinnacle of the sport. It offers opportunities to get behind the scenes, meet the world's best athletes and then take part in a racing program on the F50 race course, directly in front of the onlooking crowds.
Interested sailors must apply to attend the NZ selection qualifier. Applications close Wed 15th Jan 2020.
This qualifying event is not exclusive to WASZP owners so there will be some sort of "heats" format for those sharing boats.
