PA’s sponsorship of RS Feva UK National and World Championships

Developing tomorrow’s Olympic sailors

PA and RS Feva competition logo

PA began sponsoring the RS Feva UK Nationals and World Championships in 2015, with its goal of helping the next generation of sailors reach their full potential. Our support of RS Feva allows us to recognise the importance of sport and competition in the development of our leaders of the future.

The RS Feva leads the world’s development of junior double-handed sailing and the events are the training ground for the high-performance boats of Olympic sailing. More than 360 young sailors from over 20 countries will participate in the RS Feva World Championships, with over 250 sailors participating in the UK Nationals.

We are proud to support many non-profit organisations worldwide and focus our work on ‘making the difference for young people’ – providing the skills, confidence and opportunities they need to fulfil their ambitions and create a brighter tomorrow.

Spring Championships

On 25 March, PA’s Adam Freeman-Pask, a former Team GB Olympic rower, delivered a motivating after-dinner speech on "Inspiring to Improve" aimed at sharing his experiences and techniques of being an Olympic athlete, inspiring the young sailors to realise their full potential. He also announced the launch of our next spinnaker competition.

Spinnaker Competition

In March, we launched the RS Feva Spinnaker competition, which ran for approximately 2 months closing on Friday 12 May. This year’s competition asked participants to capture and share on Instagram a moment that ‘inspires, encourages and pushes you to get out there and continue to improve your sailing’. We had a brilliant 37 entries! The two lucky winners were awarded a brand new spinnaker to use at the UK National Championships.

UK National Championships

The RS Feva UK National Championship will take place from 27-30 May at Royal Torbay YC. The promenade will be lined with the PA logo on a-wash of feather flags, partnered with some fun giveaways ready for a fantastic days sailing! PA will also be delighted to handout Land Rover BAR caps to some of the winners, and also a very special prize to the overall champion – a private tour of the Land Rover BAR base for themselves and friends!

World Championships

Next to look forward to will be the World Championships held in The Netherlands from 21-27 July.
