The England team will comprise 6 x Men, 6 x Women, 3 x M20 and 3 x W20. The team will be selected using the results of all National Events, UK Cup, Future Champions Cup and WOC selection races from 1 March to 18 May, with the greatest importance accorded to the ‘Long’ races and the ‘Sprints’ accorded less. Other known form (till 11 July 2010) will be considered for reserve selections if needed. Potential team members are advised to draw the selectors’ attention to results in other races they feel would contribute to the selection process.

M35 or W35 competitors are encouraged to run Open if they seek selection nevertheless their results in class will be taken into account on a mpk basis.
