US Sailing has opened registration for the 2023 U.S. Junior Women's Championship, presented by SouthCoast Wind, July 17-21, 2023, in Bristol, RI. Regular registration closes on May 15 with late registration closing June 15.

Competitors from across the country ages 13-18 years old will compete for the Ida Lewis (doublehanded) and Leiter (singlehanded) trophies. In 2023, the Leiter Trophy will be sailed in the ILCA 6, while the Ida Lewis will be sailed in the 29er. In 2022 and 2023, the Leiter and Ida Lewis events have been held concurrently at the same venue, allowing singlehanded and doublehanded sailors to interact and enjoy shared learning experiences, coaching, and networking.

"The US Sailing Junior Women's Committee is thrilled that Ida Lewis and Leiter are being co-hosted by Roger Williams University and US Sailing this summer," said Alana O'Reilly Marks, Chair of the US Junior Women's Championships Committee. "We are looking forward to welcoming the 29ers and we are excited to watch them and the ILCA's race in Mt. Hope Bay."

No private coaching is allowed; instead, US Sailing Coaches are provided to lead world-class training and coach all competitors to enhance the experience, sailing skills, competitiveness, and sportsmanship of the group. This unique, all girls event provides junior sailors with a chance to build their skills in an all-female environment and foster friendships for a lifetime.

"The value of Tom Clagett's vision behind both the Ida Lewis and Leiter trophies is immeasurable," notes Judy and Stephanie McClennan, daughter and granddaughter of Thomas Clagett and Nancy Leiter Clagett. "For the past 28 and 43 years respectively, the opportunity for Junior Women Sailors to have the combination of clinics and competition to help them improve their sailing skills has been not only an exceedingly valuable experience, but for many a memorable and prominent step in their sailing and racing experiences. For many, Ida and Leiter have been where young women have met, made lifetime friends, shared coaches and improved their sailing skills all while attending these clinics and regattas."
