Oakcliff Sailing is thrilled to be hosting the 2017 U. S. Match Racing Championship. We hope you are sailing in the championship or come out to watch. Volunteers welcome.

Here is a link to the U.S. Match Racing Championship web page with details like the Notice of Race, and U.S. Match Racing Conditions.

The US Sailing Championship Committee has instructed that participants should qualify by sailing their way in through local qualifiers. One qualifier will be at Oakcliff Sailing. April 21 will be a coaching day followed by two days of racing in the Match 40s. The highest placing qualified and not already invited skipper will earn a qualification space for the USMRC.  Up to ten teams will be invited.

The NoR will have the definitive word on qualifications. Information here is intended to be an accurate guideline. The 2016 USMRC winner will receive an invitation. 

Several of the qualifiers intend to have clinics, the dates below are the race days. Expected clinics will be at Oakcliff Sailing, CYC/CMRC, Buffalo YC.
