Sail-World.com : Oakcliff International 2011 announced

Oakcliff International 2011 announced

'Oakcliff - North American GRAND SLAM Match Racing Series'    .
The Oakcliff International 2011 has been announced by Oakcliff Sailing.

This event will be the final of the Grand Slam match race series which consists of the Detroit Cup, the Chicago Match Race Center grade two Invitational, The Knickerbocker Cup and the Oakcliff International - the first of the series for the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) to meet the points requirement for grade two status.


'The entire series has stimulated the growth of match racing and helped continue our goal to elevate the level of sailing in the US and the world,' said Dawn Riley Oakcliff Executive Director. 'We’re thrilled to be hosting the culmination of this competitive and exciting series.'

So far this year, Oakcliff’s match racing events included Saturday grade five regattas, the ABC qualifiers and the Spring Clinegatta, all of which were oversubscribed.

As a result, Oakcliff has increased the invited teams for the Oakcliff International from ten to twelve to better accommodate. To date, the accepted skippers include: Reuben Corbett, William Tiller, Taylor Canfield, Laurie Jury, Dave Perry, Oli Pekka Lumijarvi, Nicolai Sehested, Robbie Allam and Michael Buckley.

Two spots are being held for the winners of feeder events, including Nevin Snow who won the June Double Header at the Chicago Match Race Center, and the winner of the Evo Sport Clinegatta. This clinegatta is a two day clinic followed by a weekend grade three regatta, held at Oakcliff this July 28-31. Competitors will be coming from Canada, Bermuda, California and Maine to compete. Two spots also remain for the Evo Sport Clinegatta.

'We’re honored to be a part of the Grand Slam Series and the Oakcliff International. For the winner of our event to go on and be able to compete against some of the best national and international teams is truly exciting,' said Stephen Gourlay, the President and Owner of Evo Sport Fitness Club.

The Oakcliff International is Oakcliff’s inaugural ISAF grade two Open Match Race, and is scheduled for August 30 to September 3. There will be a cash purse, and the winner of The Grand Slam series earns a spot at the Congressional Cup.
