Underway today in Quiberon, France, are the ISAF Youth Multihull Trials. With an objective to identify a new Youth Multihull be available for selection to be used at the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship from 2005 onwards.

ISAF has sought invitations from interested classes, with all boats entering required to comply with a set of fundamental criteria, which as an overview requires an average combined crew weight of between 120 and 140 Kg, a gennaker, twin trapezes and be able to be sailed by both male and female crews between the ages of 16 and 19.

As it has long been a tradition that for equality, new boats are provided for competitors at the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship and so it has been decided that relevant manufacturers should be able to provide boats at no cost to the organisers of the event.

Nine boats have entered the trials.

All equipment will be subject to rigourous on and off-the-water testing. With teams of youth sailors attending from a number of different countries, the boats will be sailed by the age group participating at the ISAF Youth Worlds.

The ENV and ISAF have agreed the following timeframe of events. All details of the events and times are not fixed and are subject to change at any point.
