From the opening event on Canandaigua Lake, to the closing event in Rochester, teams will need to overcome a wide variety of sailing conditions; from the big water sailing of Lakes Ontario and Erie, to the crazy shifts of Lake George and Canandaigua Lake. Additional hazards to master will range from the blender storm in Cleveland, to a semi-formal dinner at Lake George. The winners of these prizes will be pretty well-rounded.
The purpose of these awards is to promote and encourage J/22 teams to travel and enjoy the hospitality and camaraderie of our regional J/22 fleets. WLSGL hopes that the establishment of a regional circuit will help regatta organizers promote their events to the region. Waterline Systems is also committed to assisting regatta organizers and competitors through sponsorship and participating in or organizing pre-regatta clinics.
The US Watercraft Top Boat Perpetual Trophy will be awarded to the boat with the lowest cumulative score using the final individual regatta rankings. A regatta win is worth 1 point, 12th in a regatta is worth 12.
The Waterline Systems Top Fleet Perpetual Trophy is designed with two goals in mind; to get fleets to encourage their members to travel, and for the fleets to help their members get better. Scoring is the same as in the individual trophy, but the top three scores of the fleet count. It does not need to be the Same 3 boats at each event... just the top three.
The Waterline Systems Trophy will display the names of all the boats that scored points for the winning team. You can take pride in winning the team trophy and tell some amazing sea stories about how you overcame the Loch Ness Monster ("Missy"(?)) and other such extraordinary tales of bravery and seamanship on your way to the season championship.
