Published on February 1st, 2022

The US Sailing Match Racing Committee is offering a competitive grant program for selected teams interested in match racing in the U.S. at a high level.

The David Storrs US Sailing Match Racing Grant Program provides reimbursement up to $5,000 per team to pay for expenses such as entry fees, travel expenses, and lodging for one full calendar year. One male skipper and one female skipper will be selected.

In addition, the grant program provides a mentor who will be available as needed to share veteran advice to ensure a successful match racing campaign.

Open to anyone with a sincere interest in match racing between the ages of 19 and 29 is encouraged to apply.

Key Dates:
• January 15th: Applications Open
• March 15th: Applications Close

The grant is funded from a generous gift by David Storrs to the US Sailing Match Racing Committee. Storrs was committed to match racing, winning the 2017 Prince of Wales trophy and climbing to the ranked position as top American and #13 in the World before he passed on in 2019.
