24th September 2009

This is a reminder that the deadline for making applications to attend the World Laser 4.7 Youth Championship 2010 is approaching.

Sailors wishing to attend the championship must apply by 13th October 2009.

Sailors who do not apply by 13th October 2009 have very little chance of attending the championship.

For more information about the World Laser 4.7 Youth Championship 2010, please see IC269 below which was sent 26th August 2009.

The Notice of Race for this championship has also been published on the event website:

The World Youth Laser 4.7 Championship 2010 is an allocated event available to entrants who will be 12 years old but not 18 years old in 2010.  To enter sailors must first complete an application for entry.  Applications for entry will be accepted from 2nd September 2009 until 23:59 GMT, 13th October 2009 with payment of the £20 (GBP) application fee which may be deducted from the entry fee or will be refunded under certain circumstances as detailed in 3.10 of the Notice of Race.

National Laser Associations must rank their sailors after 13th October 2009. All sailors who are ranked within the country allocation limit will receive a place offer with charter boat, except for sailors from Thailand who will not receive a charter boat with their place offer. Applications ranked lower than the country allocation limit will be added to the waiting list.

Extra places will be offered to sailors on the waiting list as available from the 8th December 2009.  The applicants offered a place will have 2 weeks to complete entry.  If the sailor fails to enter, the application fee will be lost and the place will be offered to the next ranked sailor.  Each country has a maximum limit of extra places available.  Once this limit has been reached, no more extra places can be offered to sailors from that country.

The application and entry timeline is as follows:
Application for Entry period:    2 September - 13 October
Applications replied to by:    3 November
Extra Places Issued from:    8 December - 4 February
