Path to the Podium

2013 Olympic Sailing Night Series Announced

Path to the Podium Poster Unveiled

 Portsmouth, R.I. (June 18, 2013) – This summer young sailors will learn first-hand about the many pathways to Olympic sailing success as Olympians, medalists, coaches and leaders from the U.S. Olympic Sailing Program—such as JJ Fetter, Josh Adams, Andrew Campbell, Luther Carpenter and Leandro Spina—speak during “Olympic Sailing Night”, a series of speaking events held in collaboration with US Sailing’s national junior championship events. The series began during the California International Sailing Association (CISA) Advanced Racing Clinic, in April, and included nights during the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) National Championships and Sail Newport’s Brooke E. Gonzalez Advanced Racing Clinic. Full details are available on line at http://bit.ly/OSNight13

“Central to our long-term strategy is building the base of high-performance sailors in this country,” said Josh Adams, Managing Director of U.S. Olympic Sailing. “We feel that it is important young sailors with Olympic sailing aspirations hear first-hand how they can chart their own Olympic pathway. We have put together a knowledgeable slate of speakers, and look forward to meeting and working with the many youth sailors looking to represent Team USA in 2020, 2024 and beyond.”

In addition to the speaking series, sailors at US Sailing’s USA Junior Olympic Sailing Festivals will receive a “Path to the Podium” poster outlining the various pathways in Olympic sailing. The poster focuses on three key stages, beginning with “skill builders”, the many junior classes and organizations across US Sailing that successfully draw thousands of young Americans into sailboat racing. The next critical stage features the six Olympic development classes endorsed by the Olympic Sailing Committee. The third stage is Olympic class training and racing at the level of US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider. In its 17th season, USA Junior Olympic Sailing Festivals is a nationwide series of regattas for youth, ages 8 to 21. There are 23 regattas slated for 2013 and over 4,000 sailors are expected to participate. Sailors can download the poster in PDF format here.

The four upcoming events are open to competitors at each of the youth championships. Regatta information, including a list of competitors, is available online at http://championships.ussailing.org/Youth.htm

Small Boat Racing

Kickoff Meeting for Pontchartrain Yacht Club Weekend Small Boat Racing Series
 
We would like to invite all PontYC members interested in creating a viable and sustainable weekend small boat club racing series starting this summer to a meeting on Thursday, May 23 beginning at 7 PM to discuss how to make this program work given the volunteer nature of our club. I have been tasked by the board of directors to determine if this program is feasible with potential interest levels and the assets we currently have on hand.
The meeting will be not only a presentation on how the series would be sailed but will also include a frank and open discussion regarding the realities and requirements for a program like this that include establishing a race management infrastructure, equitable fleets of club owned boats available to non-boat owner/participants that are in sailable and raceable condition for fair competition, inclusion for privately owned boats, and creating a fun, non-intimidating, and learning environment for all levels, genders, and ages. The program will allow all types of sailboats (keel and centerboard, mono- and multihull, sportboat, etc.) 22’ in length and under to participate. We also want to discuss how this program can be complimentary to the club “big boat” PHRF racing program and all PHRF sailors are urged to attend.
 
For this program to be successful, it will have to be a broad club wide effort that includes participation and a willingness to take ownership of the club assets we have available. The benefits are many in that it will help re-focus our membership on the basic mission of our club which is to promote sailing, help teach skills and seamanship, and create a high level of camaraderie and friendship. We hope you will consider attending.
 
Thank you.
Bob Hodges
