Registration is now open for the U.S. Junior Women's Singlehanded Championship and U.S. Junior Women's Doublehanded Championship. The U.S. Junior Women's Singlehanded Championship for the Leiter Trophy is scheduled for July 8 – 13, 2019, at Richmond Yacht Club (Richmond, Calif.).

The U.S. Junior Women's Doublehanded Championship for the Ida Lewis Trophy is July 19 – 24, 2019 at the San Diego Yacht Club (San Diego, Calif.). Both of the championships will feature two days of clinic instruction led by US Sailing endorsed high-performance coaches and three days of competitive racing.

New fleet additions for the 2019 Championships include a Laser 4.7 fleet for the Leiter and a 29er fleet for the Ida Lewis. Other fleets represented at the regattas are Club 420s and Laser Radials.

Ida Lewis has allocated 30 spots for Club 420 registrations and 10 spots for 29ers. Ida Lewis is expected to include up to 80 athletes ages 13-18. 60 spots are allocated for Laser Radial and 4.7 sailors at the Leiter, sailors ages 13-18.

"The addition of Laser 4.7's and 29ers into the existing U.S. Junior Women's Championship is a great step forward for these events", recalled Alana Marks, head coach for both championships and past Olympic campaigner. "We are excited to get more competitors on the water while using the Ida Lewis and Leiter regatta structure that works so well. The new fleets will further add camaraderie of the championships".

The C. Thomas Clagett Trust graciously funds the U.S. Junior Women's Championships.
