|SANJL Youth Sailing
Started in 1978, the SANJL Youth Regattas help young sailors become experienced self-confident racers. They offer new racers the challenge of competing on different lakes against other new sailors and they offer experienced racers the opportunity to sail with the best young sailors in the area.
This year the tradition continues with two junior regattas. The first is an open regatta. It will be hosted and run by the Hunterdon Sailing Club on Aug 2nd. The next will be the SANJL Youth Championship. It will be held at Mountain Lakes on Aug 10th. The winners of that event will be awarded the perpetual SANJL Youth Championship Trophies (Junior and Midget divisions). These events are a great chance for young sailors to improve their racing skills and make new friends.
SANJL Youth Open Regatta & SANJL Youth Championship
Each event will have a SANJL regatta coach who will provide rigging and sailing advice to any interested racers. Multiple races will be sailed each day. If four races are completed, one throw-out will be used to calculate the standings for the day.
To compete as a Midget, an individual must not have reached his or her 14th birthday by the end of 2014. For Midget Doubles, both skipper and crew must be Midgets. To compete as a Junior sailor, an individual must not have reached his or her 19th birthday by the end of 2014. All sailors must wear USCG approved personal flotation devices at all times when on the water.
