The Mid- Atlantic Midget Championship will be held at the Tred Avon Yacht Club this year on August 13-14, 2016.

This will be an particularly awesome event this year as it will be held in conjunction with the Oxford Regatta (to be sailed on a separate course!). This is one of the most PRESTIGIOUS EVENTS on Maryland's Eastern Shore. TAYC is located in a delightful waterfront town which was a former colonial seaport. The have their own sandy beach, a la carte meals, a cash bar (for the parents) and music all weekend.  Saturday night there will be dance and awards will be held at Haleigh ( a beautiful 19th century mansion). It promises to be an exciting weekend for the junior sailors and their families.

NJYRA can send 3 Opti Sailors and 2 -  C420 teams. 

The qualifier for the double handed  (C-420)  will be sailed at Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club on July 15.  Please refer to their website for more information and registration or contact Jim Ballintine

The qualifier for the Opti's will be invited based on standings after the Island Heights Junior Olympics to be sailed July 18 -19.  See their website for more information and to register on-line.
