ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship 2011
Zadar, Croatia

The deadline for youth sailors to submit their applications to the ISAF Athlete Participation Programme for the 2011 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship has been extended to 1 March 2011.
The ISAF Athlete Participation Programme (APP) was created in 2002 and assists athletes with attending the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship by offereing coaching support and financial subsidies towards the entry fee and travel costs. The World Youth Sailing Trust provides a Championship coach. The APP is targeted at sailors from nations in Subscription Catetgories 1, 2 and 3.

Thanks to APP funding a total of ten nations - including the Cook Islands, Cuba, El Salvador, Serbia, Botswana and Paraguay - have been able to compete at the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship.

The APP allows athletes, via their Member National Authority to apply for support in the following ways:

Event Coaching and Support
Athletes who are not able to travel with a team leader or coach are able to apply for coachign support. The on-site Championship coach will be available for pre and post race briefings and other essential event support.

Entry Fee Subsidy
Athletes may apply for a subsidy towards the event entry fee.

Travel Subsidy
Athletes may apply for a subsidy towards their travel expenses in order to attend the Championship.

All ISAF Member National Authorities have been sent the ISAF APP Application Form. The form must be returned to the ISAF Secretariat by 17:00 UTC on 1 March 2011. If you would like further information please contact the Competitions Team at the ISAF Secretariat - click here to send an email.
