YRA Youth Challenge Trophy

The YRA of LIS is proud to announce a new season trophy called the YRA Youth Challenge Trophy.

To qualify, a boat needs to have at least 33% of its crew be between the ages of 14 and 24 at the start of the race.

At least three of the eight qualifying races have to be completed:


May 31          Port Washington Day Race

June 20         City Island Distance Race

July 11          Lloyd Harbor Stratford Shoal Race

July 11-12     Huguenot YC Expressly For Fun Regatta

July 31          Sea Cliff Around Long Island Regatta

Aug 1-2         YRA Championship Regatta

Sep 4            Stamford YC Vineyard Race

Oct 10           Indian Harbor Stratford Shoal Race


To participate, a skipper has to declare the total crew and number of junior crew on board on their entry as provided by the sponsoring Yacht Club. 

This is a great opportunity to get young people onto big boats and compete for a prestigious YRA trophy to be awarded in December at the YRA winter meeting.
