    MINOR RELEASE FORMS

    2017 Marked the 50th Anniversary of the historic and highly competitive U.S. Match Racing Championship.

    Match Racing in the U.S. is seeing a resurgence with ten teams competing. Selection is done through U.S. Match Racing Qualifying events, or by invitation from the selection committee based on many factors including ranking. Each member of the crew must be a member of US Sailing and of a sailing organization that is a US Sailing member, except that participants from other countries shall either be members of US Sailing or be members of their ISAF recognized national authority for sailing.

    The event will consist of the following stages: Stage 1 – Preliminary Round Robin Racing Stage 2 – Semi-Final/Final Knock-out Series

    The winning team comprised of 100 percent U.S. citizens will earn the title of U.S. Match Racing National Champion and will qualify to represent the United States in the Open Division at World Sailing’s 2018 Nations Cup Regional Qualifier, an international match racing championship.

    The overall winning team, regardless of team members’ nationality, will earn the Prince of Wales Bowl and automatically qualify for next year’s U.S. Match Racing Championship.
