Rose Cup - Buckstaff, Lynch and Shea victorious + Video


'The competitors and officials at the 2013 Rose Cup, raced in Sail Sheboygan’s Elliott 6m’s, the same boats raced in the 2012 Olympic Games.'    Dave Perry

In the 2013 Rose Cup, the team of Scott Buckstaff, Corey Lynch and Sammy Shea from the San Francisco Yacht Club have claimed victory. The event is a U.S. youth national match racing championship sanctioned by US Sailing, hosted by Sail Sheboygan in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and sponsored by Gill, Harken, Line Honors Outfitters, North U, North, Sail Sheboygan, and the event’s founder the Newport-Balboa Sailing & Seamanship Association.

Racing was done in the same Elliott 6m’s used in the 2012 Olympic Games. Second was defending champion Will Holz, Clay Danly and Alex Woloshyn from the Chicago Yacht Club. Third and fourth were Ryan Davidson, Brandon Folkman and Gregg Kent, and Christophe Killian, Harrison Vandervort and Jack Martin, both from the Balboa Yacht Club.

The Killian team was awarded the Nick Scandone Sportsmanship Award based on a vote by the competitors and umpires. Five skippers qualified for invitations to the Governor’s Cup, an international youth match racing event held at the Balboa Yacht Club in Newport Beach, California, July 16-21, 2013.

Olympian Sally Barkow from Nashotah, Wisconsin ran a two day clinic and continued coaching all the teams during the round robin. 'What impressed me the most,' said Barkow, 'was the tremendous improvement in the match racing and small keelboat racing skill of all eight teams. Most had no experience in the Elliotts, and some had very little experience in formal match racing. By the last day, it looked like a Grade 3 match racing regatta with multiple lead changes and boats overlapped at the finishing line.'

Dave Perry, chairman of the US Sailing Match Racing Committee said, 'Many of us are working hard on introducing the 16-22 year old sailors in the U.S. to competitive match racing, and the Rose Cup is our pinnacle event. We are pleased to announce that next year’s event will be hosted by Oakcliff Sailing and the Seawanhaka Yacht Club, June 18-22, 2014, in Sonars.
