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 Sailing Regatta in downtown St. Augustine April 6th & 7th 2024. 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.

2024 Youth Sailing Regatta Registration

The 2024 SARW Youth Sailing Regatta will be for 420 Sailors only.

The Youth Sailing Regatta will be sailing in the shadows of historic structures like St. Augustine’s Castillo de San Marco and the beautiful Bridge of Lions. Sailers 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 a Great Pizza Awards Dinner at the St Augustine Yacht Club Sunday after the Regatta.

420 Classes: Junior Sailors up to 18 yrs can compete in two 420 Classes: 420 Scholastic (Main and Jib) as well as 420 Club (Trap & Spin). There is a maximum 30 boat limit for the combined classes.

Regatta Fee: 420 Sailors – $106.50 per Boat (covers both Skipper and Crew). A $10.65 late fee will be charged for registrations received after March 30th. To participate, each skipper must fill out a registration form (Scroll down for the link). Payment can be made online or at registration via check, cash or credit card.

Logistics: Loading/Unloading, Check-in, Skippers Meeting and Awards Banquets will all be held at St Augustine Yacht Club. Trailers can be unloaded on Friday night or Saturday morning. 420 boats can be stored on the beach Saturday night. Support boats can be left on trailers or tied up on the public floating dock.

We are delighted to be able to offer this great event again through the generosity of our sponsors. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 904 571-2227 or by email at jgfla1@gmail.com
