2024 Solidarity Program for Oceania & Australian Open & Youth Championships in Adelaide
Applications are now open for the 2024 Solidarity Program for ILCA 4 female sailors for the 2024 Oceania & Australian Open & Youth Championships in Adelaide.


Following the success of the 2023 Solidarity Program at Georges River Sailing Club in NSW, ILCA Australia has expanded the program for 2024. The expanded program will see selection of 10 ILCA 4 female sailors, being one from each Australian District (excluding the NT), one from New Zealand, and three female sailors from Oceania small islands. Further information from ILCA Oceania is here: 2024-Oceania-ILCA-4-Solidarity-Program-Outline.pdf

The program will provide free entry for the regatta and functions, a supplied boat, merchandise, a coach and more importantly, entry to a team of like-minded female sailors for the duration of the championships. The successful applicant will need to make their own travel arrangements to/from Adelaide Sailing Club, although the QLA is in a position to provide financial assistance to sailors travelling interstate for regattas. Information on QLA’s travel assistance policy is on this website.

You can read about the experience of the female sailors in the 2023 Solidarity Program in the post from ILCA Australia Here.
