If you are applying to Youth Champs, here are some hints:
- Information regarding the status of your application, including acceptance, wait list and incomplete, will be sent to the applicant’s email address provided. Please monitor your email account for updates. It may be in your Social, Promotions, Spam or Junk mail folder.
- It’s very important that you provide your e-mail as well as your parents‘ so we can reach you. They should not be the same e-mail.
- If you give us permission to send you a text message to your personal cell it is the fastest way for us to contact you in the event of any problems or updates.
- Make sure your US Sailing membership is up to date. Renewing online is the fastest way. www.ussailing.org/membership
- Please list the FULL NAME of your sailing organization. Do not list AYC, BYC, CYC, DYC, EYC – please write it out . For example: Annapolis Yacht Club, California Yacht Club, Clearwater Community Sailing Center….
- If you think you’ve applied and do not see your name listed under APPLICATIONS RECEIVED on this page, it means that your application is incomplete and/or you have not paid your application fee. US Sailing has sent a link to everyone who has not completed their application so check your e-mails for a link from Regatta Network. It may be in your Social, Promotions, Spam or Junk mail folder.
Keep your registration confirmation. You can use it to go back at any time and update your resume until we shut the system down on March 15th.
- If you are sailing a doublehanded boat, make sure both skipper and crew are listed. Doublehanded teams register as a team.
- The helm begins the process. All you have to do is enter your crew’s name and e-mail and hit “E-mail Crew” at the bottom of the page. That will e-mail them a link directly to their resume page. Hopefully that will make life a lot easier.
Don’t forget to keep going and submit your application fee though. Just make sure your teammate fills their section out so your application is complete.
Most importantly: Review your application before sending. Every year, a sailor is not accepted because they didn’t complete the full application. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
For more tips, visit the Application section under More Resources on the right hand side of the website.
