BUSA is now inviting bids from Member Clubs to host the 2020 Fleet Racing Championships. We are aware that many clubs are finalising their annual calendars well over a year ahead. Bids are being sought by 23:59 on Friday 1st November 2019.
The BUCS Fleet Racing Championships are the annual university fleet racing competition held between the members of BUSA (British university sailing clubs). The event currently combines an individual and team competition, with approx. 230 sailors/130+ boats competing each year. The event is sailed in four fleets, including Fireflies, Lasers, Slow & Fast Handicap fleets, over two days, on the first or second weekend of November – i.e. 7-8th or 14-15th November 2020.
The BUSA Committee, whilst welcoming bids from previous venues, are also open to new proposals across the UK, including inland venues. The racing area needs to be sufficiently large to support two courses for the range of dinghies identified above and to have the prevailing weather conditions in early November to make the Championship possible. Other factors that BUSA will take into account are accessibility by both USC-owned and privately-owned boats, availability of boats to charter, accessibility of accommodation and of university / social facilities, as well as on and off the water facilities and equipment.
