This is a request for an invitation (RFI) to the championship, not a registration for the championship itself. To submit this Request for Invitation, you must be a current member of US Sailing. You can look up your current member ID here or, if need be, renew or obtain a membership here. The Selection Committee may issue up to nine (9) invites. Deadline to apply is July 1, 2021.

All competitors must be classified under the World Sailing Sailor Classification Code; https://members.sailing.org/classification Groups 1 and 3 competitors may compete. Teams are limited to up to three Group 3 competitors. No Group 3 competitor may act as helmsperson unless he/she was the helmsperson and owner of the boat used in the five races which qualified him/her for eligibility.
A minimum of five of each competitors’ team must have raced together (including the designated skipper) in at least five regattas in IRC, ORC, ORR, PHRF, Offshore One Design, Offshore Level Class Racing or Portsmouth Numbers rating systems in the past 18 months. Should issues on last-minute substitutions(at check-in or during the regatta) of crew raise eligibility questions, the Protest Committee shall make the final decision on eligibility. All other substitution requests(after registration is complete and prior to check-in) be addressed to the Selection Committee.
NOTE: You will be asked to provide the names of the names of the five crew members as part of your resume. You also be required to add the names and contact information for your entire team within the actual application questions below.
Each team’s skipper must have been the regular helmsman for the five qualifying regattas and must start and sail all windward legs in this regatta. Application fees are not refundable.

Should the event is cancelled due to Covid-19 health concerns, your application fee will be refunded minus any credit card service fees.
