BUSA is now inviting bids from Member Clubs to host the 2016 Fleet Racing Championships.

The BUCS Fleet Racing Championships are the annual university fleet racing competition held between the members of BUSA (British universities). The event combines an individual and team competition, with approx. 300 sailors attending each year. The event is sailed in four fleets including Fireflies, Lasers, Slow & Fast Handicap, over two days on the first weekend of November each year – 5th/6th November, 2016.

This is the first event of the season and where many new students have their first taste of university sailing. The competition can be fierce and the difference between the top teams very slight, making for excellent racing.

Although there is not much financial reward for hosting this event as BUCS manage the budget and take the entry fees, the host university can make a small profit from the socials.

Please see the attached information in the Bidding Invitation + Guidance + Questionnaire, together with a Word version of the Questionnaire to facilitate completion and for attachment to your proposal. You will need to discuss the possibility of bidding with your Club Committee and Students Union / Athletic Union. You must also approach your sailing venue to make sure they would be happy to have the event and the dates are free.

If you wish to proceed with a bid, please let the Jess Beecher – BUSA Secretary – know and prepare a proposal. Bid documents should be emailed to the BUSA Secretary no later than 5.00 pm on 20th April 2016.
