The 2017 O’Pen BIC North American Championships will be held in Sarasota, Florida hosted by the Sarasota Sailing Squadron, March 17-19 2017. This event will also be an important qualifier for limited North American invitations to the America’s Cup Endeavour O’Pen held in conjunction with the America’s Cup Finals in Bermuda, June 15-18 2017. The Organising Authority for this regatta is Sarasota Youth Sailing in association with the North American O’Pen BIC Class.
Important Event Introduction: The purpose of this event is to run a fun event for youth sailors in a more loosely competitive style in dynamic junior boats. Results are not nearly as important as everyone having a good time sailing. It is our goal that the sailors improve their skills, make new friends, and have a ton of fun. This event will be a combination of “conventional” style race formats with unorthodox “Un-Regatta” style courses and events. Don’t expect conventional round the buoys racing or upwind starts for all races. Capsizes, freestyle, speed and fun will be required. If you are a hard-core racer with rule book in hand, this event may not be for you. If you want to have fun, challenge your limits, and pioneer a new chapter in Youth Sailing, we invite you to come join the fun.
The fleet is comprised of two Divisions. This modifies Class Rule C.2.3
- U13 Division: Competitors born after Dec 31st, 2004
- Open Division (all ages welcome)
