BUSA is now inviting bids from Member Clubs to host the Finals of the 2017 Team Racing Championships.
The Finals of the BUCS-BUSA Team Racing Championships are the culmination of the annual university team racing competition held between the members of BUSA (British university sailing clubs – USCs). From a total entry of 75 to 85 teams, the Finals represents the best 28 teams of 6 sailors, having qualified through Leagues, Qualifiers and Playoffs, together with the top Irish university team. The event is sailed in Firefly dinghies over three days.

The BUSA Committee’s intention is that the Finals will be held over any consecutive three-day period from to 3 to 7 April 2017 (inclusive).

The Championship Finals is one of the premier team racing events in the UK and is the culmination of the university team racing season. The competition can be fierce and the difference between the top teams very slight, making for excellent racing and good spectating.

Aside for the prestige of hosting the event, most host clubs have benefited financially from being host. In recent years, there is always a full turnout, and a well-run and disciplined event with social functions on the side can return a surplus for the Host Club, allowing the part-funding of replacement flights of boats or other projects.

However, whilst there can be financial benefits, the main motivation for hosting a Finals should be to run a great event for the British team racing universities.

University Sailing Clubs in membership of BUSA are invited to submit proposals to host the Championship in 2017.
Please see the attached information in the Bidding Invitation + Guidance + Questionnaire, together with a Word version of the Questionnaire to facilitate completion and for inclusion with your proposal.

Any queries, or requests for further information, should be addressed to Jessica Beecher, BUSA Secretary, to whom proposals should be submitted no later than 5.00 pm on Wednesday, 20th April 2016.
