This year there will be 5 separate fleets over 2 course areas.
BUCS Laser Championship (Handicap)
BUCS Firefly Championship (& Firefly type dinghies, i.e. team racing fireflies)
BUCS Slow Handicap Championship
BUCS Fast Handicap Championship
BUCS Development Fleet (no BUCS points) - Cancelled due to no entries
**Please be aware that BUCS have changed the BUCS TEAM composition for this year. It is now ALL male crews and ALL female crews. Both receive BUCS points (i.e. no mixed crews).**
Team BUCS Points will be made up of the top three from each university from each fleet (not the Development Fleet) of 15 or more, taken from the results at the end of the event (more details in the NoR). The Team (Men's and Women's) points/medals will be awarded to single sex crews only.
Mixed crews are permitted and can get individual points/medals, but will not count towards Team points. Any queries, please contact Jess Beecher.
There are also some charter boats available at the Mount Batten Centre. Please contact them directly and soon, as they get booked up very quickly.
The venue will be open until 10pm on Friday for boats to be dropped off. All boats must be removed by 12 noon on Monday.
All sailors must complete the medical form and bring it to registration, together with their university registration / matriculation card, to prove their student status (NUS cards will NOT be accepted as proof of eligibility to compete).

My university does not have a club, can I still compete? Answer: Yes.
Do I need to be a member of BUSA? Answer: No; if your unversity is not currently a member of BUSA, you can still enter. You will need to be member(s) of the RYA (in order to race under the RRS). Please get in touch with Jess Beecher for more information.
