The 2013-2014 Jet 14 Class Travelers Series will continue this weekend June 14-15 with the Konigsberg Memorial Regatta at Severn Sailing Association, Annapolis, MD.
Each year, the Travelers Series kicks off after the Class Nationals with a regatta in the fall. The 2013-14 Series started last October at Mohican Sailing Club’s Halloween Regatta, October 12-13 and is followed by three more events.
The Konigsberg will be the second scored regatta, followed by the Gravy Bowl at Hunterdon Sailing Club (Clinton, NJ) August 9 and concluding with the Jet 14 National Championships August 14-16 at Mayfield Yacht Club (Mayfield, NY).
The Series is scored using a high-point system which scores well-attended regattas more heavily. For example, if there are 11 total boats registered for a regatta, the first-place boat would receive 11 points and the last-place boat would receive one point. The scores at the more heavily attended Nationals Championships will be weighted only 50% of the entrants.
Though there are four events scored for the Series, a skipper only needs to race in three (with participation at the Nationals required). If a skipper races all four, the worst (lowest) score will be discarded.
So attend as many events as you can and get yourself scored in the Travelers Series.
