US Sailing Team **RADIAL** qualification rules

Thread starter #1
This sent to me by Gary Bodie (US Sailing).
I'll happily forward the same information for CYA when I get it.




The 2005 US Sailng Team Ranking System for the new womens Olympic event in the Laser Radial will be similar to the Laser Standard. The Rolex Miami OCR is a MUST SAIL, MUST COUNT event and then you must sail and count either of the Midwinters East or Midwinters West.

The Rolex Miami OCR Regatta in Radial will be for Women Only. It is anticipated that the men and women Radial sailors will sail together at MWE and MWW, as usual. We hope to attract a quality field of International as well as US women to the Rolex Miami OCR. The anticipated scoring for the three regatta series is to count your overall regatta finish (not points) in Miami and your overall finish (not points) in one of the other two events. In this scheme, the International Women at Rolex Miami OCR, and Men or Int Women at MWE or MWW do NOT get extracted from the overall regatta finish. Miami OCR would be the tie breaker. Final decisions on scoring, tie breaking and rules will be posted later.

Jan 23-28 Rolex Miami OCR Miami, FL
Feb 24-27 Midwinters East Clearwater, FL
Mar 11-13 Midwinters West Los Angeles, CA

Questions?? Please let me know.
