Laser Open & National Championships 2020



We are hoping everyone will get involved with the Mentor/Mentee Scheme at the Nationals.  It's a great way to meet fellow sailors and get some sailing tips and encouragement.


At the Commodore's Welcome on Saturday evening, we will introduce the pariings for the mentor/mentee Scheme. We would like to encourage you to find your Mentor/Mentee at the event, so you can introduce yourselves and start talking about how to to help.  The  Mentor/Mentee List will also be displayed on the notice board.


There will even be prizes awarded for most improved Mentee/Mentor pairing, based on the Mentee position from Day 1 to Day 6. In the event of a tie, the prize will go to the highest placed Mentee/by nomination.

We try to match up competitors, but sometimes we don't get it right.  Please feel free to swap roles with your partner.  If you feel you are both at the same level, just have a chat about the racing together.  If you have any other questions or concerns, please speak to one of the UKLA Team.

If you feel your pairing is not right...
