Are you a young match racer looking to hone your skills? Apply for the U.S. Match Racing Championship for the Rose Cup, June 26-30 at Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, Mass.

The Rose Cup is an invitational event open to sailors who have reached their 16th birthday but not their 21st birthday during the calendar year in which the event is held (i.e., must be born between January 1, 2004 and December 31, 2008). The Championship features world-class coaching and serves as an outstanding training ground for young sailors who are passionate about match racing and focused on competing at the next level.

"We are very pleased to see the competitive group of applicants we have received to date and welcome additional applications for everyone interested," said Ryan Davidson, USYMRC Committee Chair. "This years event at Corinthian Yacht Club is not one you will want to miss!"

Applications submitted by April 1 will receive preference. Request an invitation here: form.jotform.com/240095124431143. Competitors are asked to provide their top three match and fleet racing accomplishments over the past three years, and to write briefly about their experience racing on a 3-4 person keelboat.

Teams consist of crews of four, with at least one male and one female and a maximum crew weight of 660 pounds. Teams may be composed of members from different yacht clubs or sailing associations.

The Rose Cup started as an invitational youth match racing event in 2010. It was founded by members of Balboa Yacht Club in Newport Beach, California, and the Newport-Balboa Sailing & Seamanship Association. Its mission is to assist in the promotion of youth match racing in the United States and improve the quality of US competitors in national and international competition.

Thanks primarily to the efforts of US Sailing Match Racing Committee Vice-Chair and five-time US Match Racing Champion, Dave Perry, US Sailing made the event one of its three match racing championships, and it officially became the U.S. Youth Match Racing Championship in 2015.
