FJ YOUTH MEETING 2023 – SAILING TO THE FUTURE
21 – 23 July 2023 – Brenzone sul Garda, Italy
The first international FJ Youth Meeting will take place on 21-23 July 2023, with a twofold motivation: (i) practicing a sport that connects people who love nature and who are aware of its fragile equilibrium; (ii) promoting the FJ class among young people who are the future of sailing and of the world itself.
For these reasons we have labelled this pre-European Championship training meeting as SAILING TO THE FUTURE. It is an international meeting dedicated to young sailors of the International FJ Class, under the age of 22, but possibly open to older sailors. The meeting will take place in the same waters and in the same sailing club as the European Championship, with almost no solution of temporal continuity.
Registration will officially open on 15 February 2023 (see below).
We recommend that you register and seek for accommodation as soon as possible as Lake of Garda is in high demand during the month of July.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Brenzone for this great event!
For the organizing committee,
The goal of the meeting is to bring together the young people of the FJ class in training and practice sessions before the 2023 European Championships, with the aim of stimulating international aggregation in the FJ class. The target is sixteen young sailors. Older sailors will be admitted if less than sixteen young sailors will participate.
The event will consist of three days of training and practice, will classroom sessions and sessions on the water, as well as social events. An experienced and reputed trainer will be responsible for the sailing sessions. The trainer will use videos, including videos shot during the sessions on the water. Participants must arrange for their own boat. However, crews may then be mixed up by the trainer. The Acquafresca Sport Center will provide a classroom and assistance boats.
