All NJYRA Junior Sailors:

This is a great opportunity for our Junior Sailors since the boats WILL BE PROVIDED for our team!

However the event is June 29 and resumes will be used to select the NJYRA team.  So time is of the essence!

US Sailing will be holding the Area C qualifier on June 29 for the 3 Handed Juniors at the Corinthian Yacht Club of Philadelphia

Registrations will need to be submitted by June 22.  Due to the short time frame NJYRA will be unable to hold a qualifying regatta.

If anyone who is 18 or less in 2014 is interested in participating they need to submit a resume ASAP to Joe Malik, NJYRA Secretary at  We need your resume by June 15 to make selections!

NJYRA will be able to send one qualifying team of 3-4 junior sailors to Philadelphia this year, the supplied boat to be sailed in a Round Robin format will be J-22's. It is a triple handed event but a team may also have a fourth person as alternate

The finals this year will be held at the Grand Traverse Yacht Club in Traverse City, MI August 4-8, so you should not submit a resume unless you are able to commit to this date as well.

In case anyone is interested in the Junior Single and Double Handed (Smythe & Bemis) these will be decided in an open regatta, bring your own boat, in Laser Radials and 420's at the Cape May Corinthian Yacht Club on July 9.
