Challenging yacht owners to increase youth participation
The YRA of LIS wants to increase the participation of youths in its big boat sailing events, so the YRA has introduced the Youth Challenge Cup. Yacht owners competing in YRA qualifying regattas are encouraged to include youths not older than 18 years of age as part of their crew.
YRA of LIS Youth Challenge Cup Qualifications:
- All YRA qualifying regattas will be counted towards the Youth Challenge Cup.
- A boat must be sailed with 25% of her total crew, (rounded to the nearest whole number), not older than 18 years of age (in the calendar year).
- It is the entrants’ responsibility to have the initials “YCC” displayed after the boat name on all race documents, (Scratch Sheet and Results).
- The entrant must e-mail the YRA Scorer at email@example.com for each race they intend to count towards this trophy. It must include the total number of crew and the number of qualified youth on board.
Details on scoring may be found in the YRA LIS Racing Program or on the YRA website www.yralis.org under the Youth Challenge Cup topic.
