Event Information

Carsington Sailing Club will be entering the Honda Youth Rib Challenge this year. Each club participating will enter 1 child from each age group (see below) in the regional final. The winners of these go to the Southampton boat show to compete for the national finals and the chance to win a RIB for the club.

The HYRC is a fun and exciting event so naturally lots of people will want to enter. In order to be considered for the training and club heat candidates MUST be available to complete all the following dates
