We are pleased to announce the dates for the 2018 sprint finals to be held again at Grafham Water Sailing Club on 10th and 11th March next year.
The format of racing will be similar to 2017 with 36 qualified boats battling it out for the title of sprint champions.
Qualification for the event will be by the following methods:
|1.||18 boats to be selected from the results of regional and club-level sprint racing events held by the end of January 2018;|
|1.1||All first place boats at any qualifying event will be admitted;|
|1.2||Where a team win more than one event, the second placed boat of the later event will qualify;|
|1.3||Large events will have second and possibly even third place boats qualify (see point a) in the Qualifying Criteria for 29er UK Sprint Racing Finals below);|
|1.4||4 of these 18 places will be reserved for wild-card entries (see point b) in the Qualifying Criteria for 29er UK Sprint Racing Finals below);|
|2.||18 boats to be selected from rolling ranking, ignoring those already qualified through regional sprint series. Date of ranking prior to winter championships applies.|
The full NOR for the sprint finals will be advertised in January.
