2020 Jr. Grand Prix Series... Cancelled


It is with great sadness that your Jr Committee reports that we are cancelling the Jr Grand-Prix Series for 2020. We recognize the climate we are currently living in and promoting travel events is just not practical or responsible at this time. Many of these regattas will continue but with different formats, event caps, local only participation and strict distancing/mask guidelines. Please follow FB or the SAYRA calendar for any updates that we get. 

Thank you for your understanding.  We want to keep to the spirit and intent of the Series Championships as a quality, well attended, multi event, regional series and are hopeful it can return in full strength in 2021! 

We encourage all clubs to "be local" - plan local focused events with appropriate event caps/social distancing/masks - such as Jr Club Championships, Club vs. Club Challenges, Clin-gattas (Clinic/Regatta together 50% drills learning/ 50% short fleet races 1 day events combine learning & racing), Team Racing clinics, Match Racing clinics, Adventure sail days, scavenger hunts, keelboat classes, etc... all can be done with smaller groups, social distanced with event caps. Youth sailing is stronger than ever at some of our organizations this summer... make sure you keep up the momentum. As many of our schools are going back virtually or online this provides a unique opportunity to provide non-traditional programing through the fall (think PE Sailing Class, US Sailing REACH STEM Classes, Powerboat Courses, etc.).
