We on the General Committee recognise just how important it is for the Classes future to encourage young people to start sailing the FD and so we must everything we can must to support them, especially in attending our major championships, where the cost of entry, travel and accommodation often can be prohibitively expensive. We re-launched the Youth Grant scheme last year in time for the World Championships in Steinhude, and a number of young teams to advantage of the money being offered.
For 2017 we have increased the Grant to 75€ for those coming from Europe and 150€ for those attending from outside mainland Europe. We therefore want to remind all those under the age of 25 that they can apply to IFDCO for a Youth Grant.
