  1. A boat must be sailed with 1/3 of her total crew, (rounded to the nearest whole number), between the ages of 14 and 23, (in a calendar year).  No double handed racing will count.
  2. It is the entrants responsibility to have the initials "YCC" displayed after the boat name on all race documents, (Scratch Sheet and Results).
  3. The entrant must e-mail the YRA Scorer at for each race they intend to count towards this trophy.  It must include the total number of crew and the number of qualified youth on board.
  4. It is requested that all participating boats fly the "J" flag from their backstay.

Challenging Owners to Increase Youth Participation

Last year the YRA listed venues that would qualify for the Youth Challenge Cup. THAT HAS CHANGED!  In 2017, all YRA qualifying regattas will now be counted towards the YCC.  

This year the process has been simplified 
so there is very little for skippers/teams to do.
