The RS:X Open Youth European Windsurfing Championships have been set for Sopot, Poland and will take place between June 24th and July 2nd.
This will allow youth sailors to compete in Kieler Woche where there will be an 8.5 Youth Men and Youth Women divisions before making the relatively short transfer to Sopot to take part in the RS:X Youth Europeans.
From an MNA perspective this works too.
Transfer your coach boats and coaches from Kiel to Sopot and then have your youth athletes take part in the RS:X Youth European Windsurfing Championships which finish in good time to move onto the the Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championships taking place in Istanbul, Turkey on July 8th [finishing July 17th].
Meanwhile those Olympic athletes taking part in the RS:X European Windsurfing Championships which start on July 2nd can rub shoulders with the youth teams at their prize giving before taking part in the senior event.
The coach boats should already be there so the logistics planning should be simplified and your costs reduced.
