Registering for a team race using Clubspot requires special procedures:
- First, register your six person team as three boats, each with skipper and crew. In the Team Name box type your club name and in the Sail Number box type #1, #2 or #3 to label each boat.
- Next, register the team's coach for free and name their team, so we know to which team each coach is assigned.
- If some clubs want to join with another club to create a mixed team combining sailors from two or three clubs, please inform email@example.com
Coaches: Brian Clancy, head coach at Cornell; Ben Mohney, Assistant Coach at Hobart; and Greiner Hobbs, finalist for ICSA Sailor of the Year. Both Clancy and Hobbs were members of Team Boss, the winners of the 2018 US Sailing Team Racing Championship for the Hinman Trophy.
Format: This is a Clinegatta, which is both a clinic and a regatta in one event. The format will include on-the-water drills, land-based sessions covering team racing tactics, team racing rules and a review of the regatta format. The times of the clinic portions of the regatta will be given at the discretion of Brian Clancy and may be mixed in before, between, or after the races.
Teams: A team consists of 3 boats. Each club whose entry is accepted must send one team with a 6 sailors, no more no less, plus one coach or instructor who brings a support boat that has the legal capacity to carry all members of their team when waiting between races. Two or more clubs may combine to form one team and combined teams are encouraged. A maximum of 12 teams will be accepted. If more than 12 entries are received, the 12 teams will be chosen based on the order their complete entries and payments are received. If places remain available at July 4th, multiple teams from a club may be accepted.
Designated team members that begin the regatta must show up each day of regatta and complete the regatta. There must be a commitment by each of the 6 team members to attend all three days. The no substitute policy is due to capacity limitations at SUNY Maritime during their summer camp and meeting rooms, day-to-day safety instructions, and familiarity with the facility and equipment.

Tuesday July 9 and Wednesday July 10: 0900 Skippers' Meeting each day, then Clinic and Racing both days and will end roughly between 5 and 6 pm depending on wind.
The end time on Wednesday may be earlier and if so announced on Tuesday. All competitors are required to stay during awards at the end of day on Wednesday.
Boats: The event will be sailed in C420 and CFJ boats supplied by SUNY Maritime. Sailors should be familar with sailing double handed boats without spinnakers or trapezes, as used for high school and college team sailing.
Prizes will be awarded to the first three teams in gold fleet and first two teams in silver fleet.
