As you may or may not know, this July the ICSA (the equivalent of BUSA) are sending a team of their best 6 sailors over to the to compete against BUSA’s best for a 3 week long sailing tour. BUSA have held the overall title since 2001, drawing the series 2-2 in the in September 2007 to retain the BUSA/ICSA Tour trophy we won in 2005.
The tour will consist of 2 and 3 boat team-racing matches and a match-racing event, with venues spread around the country from to Helensburgh. The boats being used are Fireflies, Lasers, Sonars and J-80s.
The team will be chosen by a panel of external selectors from sailors’ performances at the upcoming BUSA team-racing and match-racing final. If you would like to be considered for team selection then please fill out the attached form and either email or post it to me. My contact details are below and on the form.
This competition truly is the pinnacle of university sailing ? the most prestigious university sailing competition in the world, and a fantastic opportunity to represent your country. I would encourage anyone to apply (boys and girls ? the tour is an open competition) and so please spread the word around your university sailing clubs to make sure that everyone gets the opportunity to be selected. The deadline for applications is the 1st of April 2009, but the sooner I receive the forms the better.
Application forms should be sent to:
The Big Blue House
34 Kingsdown Parade

I look forward to receiving your applications soon. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
Best wishes for the rest of the sailing season,
BUSA Mens Captain
