The time is now for the hundreds of talented young sailors across the country to start looking ahead to the 2014 U.S. Youth Championships. US Sailing has determined the selection process for next year’s premiere youth racing regatta in the United States. This US Sailing Youth Championship regatta will be hosted by the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club (Mich.) on August 10-14. The seven classes participating in the 2014 championship include the Laser, Radial, Club 420, 29er, International 420, Formula 16, and RS:X.

Invitations will be issued to U.S. Youth Championships applicants using one of two criteria: The resume review process currently in place or a new, early acceptance process determined by a sailor's placement at designated national and regional events. US Sailing has collaborated with the class organizations to determine these events. Sailors who finish within the prescribed placing at selected events will be automatically invited to participate, provided their 2014 U.S.

Youth Championships application is completed by the due date on the U.S. Youth Championship Notice of Race, which will be posted in January. All invitation events will occur between January 1 and June 20, 2014. Approximately half the total number of places available to sailors at the U.S. Youth Championships may be allocated using this method. Any places left unfilled will go in to the pool of places available to sailors applying by resume.

Sailors invited to participate through designated events, must also meet three eligibility criteria:

They must be current members of US Sailing when competing in the specified event.
They must be a US citizen or eligible permanent resident with written authorization from ISAF for an exemption under ISAF Regulation 24.5.4.
They will not turn 20 years of age by December 31, 2014.

Sailors may also apply for invitation to the 2014 U.S. Youth Championships by submitting a resume in January. Learn more about the selection process and criteria for the 2014 U.S. Youth Championships.
