Junior Sailing 2018



Junior sailors up to age 18 who take sailing lessons at their clubs and are interested in Friday competition at different clubs should check the Schedule page for the July and August GSBYRA Junior Regatta dates. Either Sailing Instructors or parents must accompany youngsters and their boats to Junior Regattas. There is no entry fee to compete and all youngsters must register online with Regatta Network for each event. Download the fill able Medical Consent Form from the left, complete the form, save the form, and upload with each registration for a Junior Regatta. All Sailing Instructors who accompany youngsters must bring a copy of the medical information for each child to the event, are expected to assist any sailors having difficulty during races, and are expected to coach all sailors after racing ends.

Youngsters socialize with sailors from other clubs, and every competitor earns points for their club toward the GSBYRA Team Trophy awarded to the club with the most points from all the Junior Regattas. Scoring for the Team Trophy is a reverse low point system, and each sailor receives an additional point for competing. Additionally, the top qualifying junior sailor in each class is awarded a Season Trophy. These trophies are awarded in November at the Annual GSBYRA Meeting and Dinner.

Sailing Instructors from the host club run the races. Host clubs organize lunches and snacks for a minimal fee and often sell club shirts. Only Junior sailors may compete in Junior Regattas and Junior Race Week listed on the schedule. Sailing Instructors may compete in weekend GSBYRA Invitational Races and Race Week.

Junior sailors can also find information for all Midget and Junior Championships on the Championships pages.
