World Championship FD Class

Youth Grant 2019

We on the General Committee recognize just how important it is for the Classes future to encourage young people to start sailing the FD and so we must undertake everything we can to support them, especially in attending our major championships, where the cost of entry, travel and accommodation often can be prohibitively expensive. For 2019 the Grant will be 75€ for those coming from New Zealand and 150€ for those attending from other continents. We therefore want to remind all those under the age of 25 that they can apply to IFDCO for a Youth Grant.

The criteria for Grant Applications for the World Championships in Nelson, New Zealand are as follows:

•     Both Helmsmen & Crews can apply for a grant
