Entries can only be submitted on BUCScore, our online entry system. Please speak to your Athletic Union as they will need to submit your entry on this system, and it is their responsibility to manage the whole entry process.

Please note: An email address is required to enable an individual to be entered effectively within BUCScore as the system uses email addresses as unique identifiers. The email address used for each entrant must be unique to maintain validity of their entry. Changing or duplicating an email address for an entrant may result in the entry being overwritten and therefore withdrawn.

This year the BUCScore entry arrangements have changed.

All sailors (competitors, potential competitors and reserves) need to be registered on the Competitors and Reserves list on BUCScore to compete in any sailing event this year.

This replaces the “Universal Reserves List” used previously, so that all competitors and reserves will be added on the system in one place. This will remain open for additional sailors to be added in preparation for the other sailing Championships.

It should be noted that for every sailor entered on BUCScore, details of names, university, email address, mobile No. and next of kin and contact details will be required (this information will be handled only for the purposes of the administration of the BUCS/BUSA events in 2018-19 and in accordance with GDPR).

All institutions participating in BUSA/BUCS events are required to be members of BUSA. The Annual subscription, as described on the BUSA website is required in order to participate. This fee includes your club’s RYA Affiliation. SUBCRIPTIONS ARE DUE BY 1 NOVEMBER 2018. If you have not received your invoice by October, please request it via email to busa@rya.org.uk. If your university requires a purchase order number to be included on your invoice, please email busa@rya.org.uk ASAP.

It is the responsibility of either the individual or institution to ensure that all entrants have appropriate insurance in order to compete. BUSA and BUCS DO NOT insure any competitor for any of their events.

As part of the entry process we collect competitor mobile phone numbers and email addresses to use in case of last minute event changes / cancellations and to pass out key information as required.
