Candidates for the 2011 Artemis Offshore Academy Selection Trials, to be held over 26 September to 1 October at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, have now been announced. The Academy has had applications to attend the Selection Trials from a diverse group of sailors ranging from the youngest round-the-world sailor, British Keelboat Academy sailors, dinghy sailors, match-racing sailors, and inshore sailors.

The Selection Trials will be split into two groups with Group A attending the Selection Trials from the 26-28 September, and group B attending from 29 September to 1 October.

The Selection Trials are a chance for aspiring solo sailors from any discipline of sailing to try short-handed racing and see if they have what it takes to join the Development Squad.
