 Oakcliff July Grade 3 Clinegatta  



The coach for this clinegatta is Will Boulden from Austrailia. He is currently ranked 13 in the world and was third in the Grand Slam last year. See his match racing results below. In addition to match race coaching he is also a 420, 29er, 49er and Moth / WASZP coach. 

Regatta July 28 - 29

Clinic July 26 - 27

The Two-Day Clinic is included in the entry fee for invited skippers and crew. Independant sailors maybe accepted for the Clinic by registering below. Frequently teams are missing a team member or two and this is an exeptional way to sail with some top level teams and learn from your team mates and our coach. 

The Clinegatta format is an wonderful way to work on your teamwork and hone your skills against top notch competiton and  an opportunity to race in the Swedish Match 40s, the boats used for the Oakcliff International and the Thompson Cup both part of the Grand Slam Series for 2018. The event will not only be thrilling for each team, but also very useful to teams trying to make it into the next tier of match racing. 

Priority will be granted to skippers that have at least one season of prior match racing experience and based on the World Sailing Match Racing Ranking List. Special consideration will be given to collegiate and women’s teams in addition to teams traveling a distance of more than 500 kilometers. Please send your request for invitation at least one month prior to the event.
