Re: TSA 2006 Youth Circuit Schedule

Listed below is the schedule for next year's TSA Youth Circuit.

The dates and venues for the Area F Qualifiers for the Smythe, Bemis and Sears will be sent out at a later date. However, note that the Smythe/Bemis Finals will be hosted this year by TCYC on August 7-11, 2006.

The "Texas Junior Laser Championship" will again be held this year as part of the AYC Roadrunner Regatta.

LYC will also be hosting a 420 clinic on a date TBA, but tentatively set for May 31-June 2. Further details will be forthcoming.

At a later date we will be forwarding a listing of other National and Regional Regattas that your junior sailors may be interested in attending. However, you should take note now that for Laser sailors the Gulf Coast Champs will be at TCYC on June 10-11 and the Laser U.S. Nationals will be at CCYC on June 15-18. Also, the Sunfish Nationals will be at RCYC June 19-23.

In planning your club's regatta you should be aware that the TSA standard forms for the NOR, SI's, Registration, and Medical Release are undergoing revision. In addition, the Circuit Conditions and Regatta Guidelines are also being revised. The final revised forms should be posted on the TSA website by the end of January, if not sooner. We have made changes to reflect the decisions of the Youth Committee at its Annual Meeting in October at TCYC. In addition, TSA has forwarded the forms to some experienced hands at US Sailing who have reviewed them and made further revisions to conform them to current US Sailing standards. Before you prepare your regatta forms please check the website and download the new forms or contact me and I will forward the appropriate forms to you.

One important change you will note in the revised Circuit Conditions, which will also be reflected in the new standard NOR and SI's, is the opening of the Laser Full Rig class to sailors of any age and the 420 class to sailors up through age 22 (the max age by class rules). Juniors under 20 racing in those two classes will still be separately scored for purposes of the Texas Youth Circuit. The hope is that by lifting the age cap to enter for the Full Rig's and 420's that we will increase participation and competition for these two fleets at TSA Youth Circuit events. The under 20 age limit will still apply to the Laser Radial and the Sunfish classes and, of course, the Optimist class age rules will still apply to that fleet.
