The road to the U.S. Junior Championships
Published on May 5th, 2014
The Area Qualifiers have been scheduled for the U.S. Junior Championships for the Singlehanded, Doublehanded, and Triplehanded events (Smythe, Bemis and Sears Trophies). Click here for schedule.
Sailors must be between 13 and 18 (cannot turn 19 in the calendar year). Both they and their sailing organization (school, sailing program, yacht club, team) must be current members of US Sailing as well as their regional sailing association (YRA).
Each of the 11 US Sailing Areas will send two teams from each of the singlehanded and doublehanded divisions, except for Area H and L who will send one. All Areas will send one team from the triplehanded division. Each Area Qualifier must have a minimum of five boats in the singlehanded and doublehanded divisions and three boats in the triplehanded division.
The Area Qualifier winners will advance to the Finals where they will compete in brand new Byte CIIs, Club 420s and identically tuned Interlakes. The finals are held in Traverse City, Michigan in August 4-8.
