EDBF 12th European Nations Championships
Following a proposal by Poland, a new rule change has been implemented for a trial period of one year to try to encourage more U18 crews to enter the Championships. A supplementary amendment to the EDBF Amendments to the IDBF Competition Regulations and Rules of Racing was agreed. A junior competitor will now be eligible in the year that they turn 16/18, rather than having to be under the age as at 1st June. For example, if a competitor now turns 18 in the period January 2016 - May 2016 they will be eligible to compete at the Championships in Rome.
Increasing the numbers of juniors participating in our sport has been high on the EDBF agenda, so it is hoped that this trial rule change will be beneficial to the sport.
