J/22 Scholarship Boat Program
Published on November 16th, 2015
The J/22 US Class Association has revealed its Youth Scholarship Boat Program, modeled after the successful Lightning Class Boat Grant Program, which will award a fully outfitted J/22 (complete with trailer) to a promising youth team for the 2016 sailing season.
The award recipients will be expected to race the J/22 Scholarship Boat in several high profile, world-class J/22 regattas (including the 2016 J/22 Worlds in Kingston, Ontario); and participate in various Scholarship Program promotional events.
The Program is intended to encourage talented youth sailors (skippers aged 19-29) to experience the J/22 and its class community of one-design sailors at virtually no cost. More information on our Program is available on the US class website.
