Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship

Yachting Australia have published details of the criteria for selection to the team to represent Australia at the Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship 2006 in Weymouth, Great Britain.
Racing will take place in the following seven events:
  • Single-handed dinghy boys
  • Single-handed dinghy girls
  • Double-handed dinghy boys
  • Double-handed dinghy girls
  • Windsurfer boys
  • Windsurfer girls
  • Multihull open

Yachting Australia has developed selection criteria for each of these events, detailed in the Nomination and Selection Policy. For most events, selection is based on the point score of two regattas - the class 2006 Australian National Championship and Yachting Australia's 2006 Australian Youth Championship, which will be held at Mooloolaba Yacht Club.

The exceptions to this are the Multihull and Windsurfing events, where the Australian Youth Championship is the only compulsory regatta.

The Australian Youth Team is supported by Yachting Australia in the way of coaching, sport science and management, both in Australia and overseas. Australia has won more gold medals than any other country at the ISAF Youth Worlds and the regatta has fostered many of the world's great Olympic and keelboat sailors.

The 2006 Australian Youth Team Nomination & Selection Policy is available from the Yachting Australia website. Further information will be posted on the Yachting Australia Youth Sailing microsite.
