Good news for initiation and young people in Argentina

The new South American Youth championship takes shape with the endorsement of World Sailing.

 The process of international approval of the Argentine coaching training plan is moving forward steadily. 

Rob Holden from World Sailing visited clubs in Posadas, Cordoba, Chascomús, Mar del Plata, the city of Buenos Aires, San Fernando and San Isidro verifying how clubs teach sailing.After that, the coach in charge of the youth, Hernán Vila completed other administrative procedures, carried out a new course and started a new process of evaluation of coaches through the Federation's education portal. It was now informed to the Federation that this process has already entered its final stage and that all the required formal requirements have been met.

On the other hand, South American countries approved to promote the holding of a youth event for international classes in our continent. The  Argentine project  achieved support from all South American countries and initial support from the  President of World Sailing  . The idea is to give a higher competitive level and continuity to South American youth events of international classes.

Today the South American Optimist Championship has a great level and that is why athletes from all over the world come to be measured in it. The development of our sport in the Region needs such an event to give at a low cost the opportunity to our athletes to continue to measure themselves with their peers at international level events.

Yacht Club Uruguayo will assume the responsibility of carrying out the event in Easter 2020 between 5 and 12 April 2020, and will participate classes 420, 29 er., Snipe, Nacra 15, Kite, Laser and Windsurf classes (some classes such as an open championship and other classes only for children under 21 years old).

Finally, in 2021 the first Pan American youth games will be held in Colombia, and the South American youth match would be the main qualifying event for the following year. It remains that the international organization decides on the events and facilities of these new Pan American youth games.
