If you are new to sailing, click here to learn all about regattas. All regattas are optional but we encourage newer sailors to attend at least one regatta their first season. Their is no better way to improve than getting out there and racing!
which events can you sail in?
- Tier 1 regattas are open to 9-12 graders, do not allow mixed teams, and are invite only. Tier 1 regattas are usually district and national championships. Teams must qualify for Tier 1 regattas by performing well at Tier 2 qualifying regattas.
- Tier 2 regattas are limited to 9-12 graders and do not allow mixed teams. Tier 2 regattas are usually qualifiers for district championships.
- For Tier 1 and 2 regattas, teams must have at least 4 sailors (for fleet racing) and 6 sailors (for team racing) from their High School.
- Tier 3 regattas are open to 7-12 graders and allow teams with sailors from different schools (mixed teams). If you are in 7-8 grade or you sail at school that does not have 4 or more sailors you will only be eligible to sail in the Tier 3 regattas.
