In addition to prizes for the overall event winner, we have "Rising Star" prizes for sailors who have not previously been members of an RYA or IOCA training squad (aka Regatta fleet). We look forward to welcoming some new faces!

There will be an official coach who will provide encouragement and support to the back few sailors in the regatta fleet during the races.
