About the Championship
The Chubb U.S. Junior Championship is U.S. Sailing’s National Championship for junior sailors, aged 13-18. The Championship is comprised of three fleets: singlehanded, doublehanded and triplehanded. The National Championship will be held, this year, at Westpoint Harbor and managed under the auspices of the Peninsula Youth Sailing Foundation (PYSF) in association with The Club at Westpoint and Westpoint Harbor from August 7th to 11th.
The singlehanded fleet (Smythe Trophy) is raced in Laser Radials and doublehanded (Bemis Trophy) in Club 420s. The type of boat the triplehanded fleet (Sears Trophy) is held in varies based on the availability of boats at the host club each year. The Sears fleet at the 2019 National Championship will be raced in Open 5.7s with three sailors per team.
Junior sailors competing at the National Championship have qualified to represent their Area at their respective Area’s Championship Qualifier. Each of the 11 Areas recognized by US Sailing sends two teams to the National Championship for the single and doublehanded fleets, with the exception of Areas H and L, each of whom sends one team. One team per Area qualifies to represent their region at the National Championship in the triplehanded fleet, competing for the Sears Trophy.
