The thrill and excitement of match racing will be on full display this weekend in Long Beach, CA, as the U.S. Youth Match Racing Championship for the Rose Cup will be hosted by the Long Beach Yacht Club.

Racing begins Friday, June 17 and concludes Sunday, June 19. Racing on Saturday and Sunday will be live streamed on the US Sailing Facebook and YouTube.

Celebrating its 12th annual running, this invitational event for 16-to-20-year-olds has served as an outstanding training ground for U.S. youth sailors who are passionate about match racing and focused on competing at the next level.

Eight teams of four, consisting of at least one female and one male crew per boat, will be racing the Soling. Coaching and instruction will play a major role in these sailors' experience. Five-time U.S. Match Racing Champion, Dave Perry (Southport, CT), will lead an Advanced Match Racing Clinic on Wednesday and Thursday, June 15 and 16, ably assisted by match racing and youth sailing expert coach Mike Pinckney (Newport Beach, CA).

"I'm really excited to work with the 32 sailors competing this week at the U.S. Youth Match Racing Championship," said Perry. "They are the best youth match racers in the country and will soon be competing at the college level and for the U.S. Open and Women's Match Racing Championships."

Originally known as the Rose Cup, this event was founded by members of the Balboa Yacht Club and the Newport Balboa Sailing & Seamanship Association (NBSSA), and was started as an invitational youth match race event in 2010. The mission is to promote youth match racing in the U.S. and improve the skills of racers from around the country in national and international competition. In 2015, US Sailing elevated the Rose Cup to an official US Sailing National Championship.
