Ontario Sailing Grand Prix Series and Regional Championships preview

Ontario Sailing Grand Prix Development Series 2012 season kicks off with the Lilac Festival at Royal Hamilton Yacht Club on May 25th.

The goal of the Series is to encourage participation and athlete development at the development level. In addition, the Grand Prix circuit builds excitement and promotes healthy development by controlling the participation at provincial events with the application of the point weighting system.

New for 2012 is the Ontario Sailing Regional Championships. These events are stand alone regattas targetted at the Learn to Sail Fast and Learn to Train levels of Long Term Sailor Development. Targetted primarily at youth, some events will also be offered for adults. The events are intended to be a good introduction to racing before the athletes start to travel to events such as the Grand Prix Series. Each event is hosted by a Club and Ontario Sailing will be giving awards to the top three clubs participating in the regatta.

How the Grand Prix Series works: Every sailor participating in the indicated events above in the following classes will be considered part of the series and will be scored: Laser, Laser Radial, Optimist, Club 420, 29er and new for this year Open BIC

Host clubs will forward $3.00 (includes HST) per participant to Ontario Sailing as a participation fee for all those participating in the above classes.

Each regatta in the series will be allocated a particular number of points based on the weighted value of that particular regatta. This value will coincide with the number of participants that will receive points (eg. If the regatta is worth 30 points only the top 30 in each calss will receive points with 30 points awarded to first place 29 awarded to second…. And so on….)

Each athlete will be able to use a maximum of five regattas to count to their total score and only a maximum of two regattas per month.

For the Optimist and Open BIC, 50% of the events will be used for scoring (for example if there are four events in total that the Optimist is included in, then the athletes top two events will be scored).

After each regatta a series leader in each class will be recognized and will wear the 'Series Leader' Bib at the next regatta. After the last event a winner in each class will be recognized.

The only classes that will be scored as part of this series are: Optimist, Laser, Laser Radial, Club 420, Open BIC and 29er. There will not be separate scoring for males and females. There will not be separate scoring for all the fleets in Optimist, the overall results will be used for scoring purposes.

In order to qualify for the series, participants will be no older than 20 years of age as of December 31st of the series year for the Optimist, Laser, Laser Radial, Club 420, Open BIC and 29er classes.

The winner of each class will be recognized at the Ontario Sailing Annual General meeting in January. Athletes finishing in the top five in each class, excluding the Optimist and Open BIC, will be invited to join the Ontario Sailing Development Team in the fall of 2012.
