2017 McIntyre Team Race

Whether you are a veteran team racer or new to team racing, the McIntyre Trophy Team Race clinegatta is the perfect event for you to kick off the summer racing season.

The clinegatta will take place at SUNY Maritime College in the Bronx, New York on July 10 to July 12. The event will be divided into two parts: part of the time will be devoted to coaching in order to enhance your team racing skills, while the rest of the time will be allocated to racing on the East River.

If your club has enough sailors for more than one team, you may be able register two six-person teams. Or, if your club does not have six sailors for a team, you may combine sailors from your club and another club to form one team.

The coaches will include Brian Clancy, head coach at Cornell University, who will lead the clinegatta. Along with him will be Amanda Callahan, head coach at Roger Williams University and Chris Klevan, assistant sailing coach at the US Coast Guard Academy. Their biographies are included in the Notice of Race that may be viewed  here.
