Dear Sailing Coach:
We are again happy to announce youth racing during St. Augustine Race Week with 420 sailors to compete in a two-day youth regatta in downtown St. Augustine March 23rd & 24th. I hope you will encourage your sailors to participate in this unique and exciting event. St. Augustine Race Week also includes offshore and inshore PHRF racing and other events.
This year we will be using www.YachtScoring.com for registration. You’ll find a link on the www.staugustineraceweek.com website (Scroll down for the link). This year will be for 420 sailors only.
The youth regatta will be sailing in the shadow of historic structures like St. Augustine’s Castillo de San Marco and the beautiful Bridge of Lions. They will race in a protected, challenging saltwater venue where parents, tourists and spectators can cheer them on from the waterfront viewing area. An expert race committee with lots of safety boats will ensure safe, fair competition. All sailors will check in at the St. Augustine Yacht Club on Saturday morning. Participants will also be treated to lunches both days, dinner on Saturday and a great pizza/ice cream awards dinner at the St Augustine Yacht Club Sunday after the regatta.
Regatta fee: 420 sailors – $50 (covers both Skipper and Crew). A $10 late fee will be charged for registrations received after March 16st. To participate, each skipper must visit www.staugustineraceweek.com and fill out a registration form (Scroll down for the link).
