Oakcliff International 2015 

The Oakcliff International is the second regatta in the GRAND SLAM Grade 2 Match Race Series. This is the penultimate match race event at Oakcliff Sailing for 2015.

There will be a cash purse. Oakcliff has 10 Swedish Match 40s with new sails. Not only are the boats a thrill to match race, they are also used on the World Match Racing Tour. The Knickerbocker Cup is sailed in Manhasset Bay, which is essentially the next bay over from Oyster Bay, the home of Oakcliff. The Knickerbocker Cup will be completed just days before the International. The other events in the GRAND SLAM Series are the CMRC Invitational, The Detroit Cup and the Knickerbocker Cup.

There will be  a $10,000 cash purse for the International which will be distributed according to the ISAF schedule.

The overall winner of the GRAND SLAM Series will receive an invitation to 2016 Congressional Cup to be held at Long Beach Yacht Club.

Invitations will be granted to the most accomplished skippers based on the ISAF World Ranking List. Special consideration will be given to international and women’s teams in addition to those competing in last year's GRAND SLAM Series. Please request an invitation (below) no later than June 1. Competitors may enter and pay their entry and deposit fees after receiving an invitation to this event. The winners of the Bettter Chip Match at Oakliff May 16 & 17, CMRC Qualifier on May 30 & 31 and Bayview YC Qualifier June 27 & 28 will receive invitations to the Oakcliff Invitational.
