National Dinghy Championships 2016 - November


Sun Nov 6th 2016
Barbados, Barbados Yacht Club, Bay Street, St. Michael

Event Details

The running of the National Dinghy Championships takes place during the months of September, October and November each year. Hosted by The Barbados Sailing Association, these annual Championships are also sponsored in part by the Barbados Olympic Association. They comprise a series of twenty-five races sailed over five weekends in various classes, with the Laser and Optimist classes attracting the largest number of entries. The Optimist dinghy is sailed by over 150,000 young sailors aged 15 years and younger in 110 countries across the globe, and a large percentage of Olympic medal winners begin their sailing careers as Optimist sailors. After 15 years of age, most Optimist sailors graduate to the Laser dinghy, which is for sailors of all ages. The Barbados Sailing Association uses the National Dinghy Championships as one of the qualifying events from which to choose sailors to represent Barbados in regional and international events such as the Caribbean Dinghy Championships and the Central American and Caribbean Games.
The date for the National Dinghy Championships in November is: Sunday 6th November, 2016.
