Each U.S. Sailing Area is eligible to send at least one sailor/team to compete in the regatta. Sailors race in one-design J/22s provided by US Sailing and the host at the event site to ensure the quality of the equipment and a level playing field.
A one day racing clinic led by US Sailing’s Junior National Coach will be held prior to the start of the championship. Coaches provide instruction on charter boat assignments, rigging and handling, starts, and practice races.
