What is The Nationals Event?
The IOM National Event is the 7th Ranking event, and for many, the highlight of the sailing season. Up to 84 skippers from all around the world come for three days of competitive and tight racing.
If you win the event you are awarded 100 points with each position awarded points pro-rata depending on the skippers finishing position at the event.
A skipper's best 4 events over a rolling 12 months gives your overall position on the ranking list.
Any member of the MYA can enter, you have no obligation
to sail in the other 6 ranking events during the year.
You may just enter just this event or any other ranking
If you fancy seeing how it all works, come along and spectate or better still volunteer to help out. Beware though...they can be addictive.
Overall, any skipper of any ability will make massive improvements in every department of their sailing by entering these races. So stop just thinking about it and come and join us at one of the IOM events in 2021.
