Victorian Sailing Cup Series Announcement

by Australian Sailing

Victorian youth sailors who wish to compete and be a part of the Victorian Sailing Cup (VSC) can now find the find the Notice of Series for the 2017/18 Victorian Sailing Cup via the Australian Sailing Youth website.

Comprised of seven locally established regattas, this series aims to build the fleet racing experience of Victorian youth classes. Classes invited to earn points in this series include the international 420, 29er, 49FX (open), Open Bic, Laser Radial, International Laser 4.7, International Optimist, International Cadet, Minnow and varied Multihull classes.

Entry fees for boats and coaches will be posted in the Notice of Race for each individual regatta. There is no entry fee for the VSC series.

The first regatta of the series is Springsail, a regional Australian Sailing event, comprising a regatta and a coaching clinic held at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club. Annually, this event sees world class coaches provide valuable input to those junior and youth sailors who wish to attend the coaching clinic, more information on Springsail coming soon early August.

A scoring system used in previous years will be implemented using the same inverse points for position system in each class. For example, boats arriving in first place will be awarded 20 points, second position will be awarded 19 etc. Boats arriving in 21st position or later will receive 0 points for the race. Although there is no entry fee for the series, as just a point scoring system is used, competitors must register for each regatta on the circuit separately with points being counted from relevant regattas only. For instance, monohulls cannot compete in the Victorian Catamaran Championships so this regatta does not count toward the series score.
