The inaugural Thirkell Trophy will be held in August 2019 – Newcastle’s premiere youth match racing event.
This regatta is open to youth sailors (under 23 yrs @ 31st Dec) who are keen to match race in a fleet of evenly matched one design inshore keelboats. Our new fleet of Elliott 6s can be raced with a crew of 3-4 (approx crew weight 240kgs)
The regatta will raced over two days as a single round robin, semis and finals which will be open to eight teams.
We will also offer coaching and debriefing sessions during the regatta so everyone is also learning whilst participating in this event.
