Charles River Open Team Race 2012
|Registration Ends:||18-May-2012 at midnight|
The MIT Sailing Pavilion and the MITNA organizing committee are proud to bring back the 2012 Charles River Open Team Race! It is expected to attract the very best collegiate teams in North America preparing for their National Championship on the following weekend in FJs and Fireflies.
The 2012 CRO Team Race will take place on Saturday and Sunday, May 19-20. Once again high paced action will be featured on the Charles River, with expert race management provided by volunteers and members of the last event winners. As always, amazing hospitality will be provided by the MIT Sailing Pavilion staff. We will use 18-30 FJs and 18 Fireflies enabling us to have a high volume of races for all participants.
Entry will be limited to high school and college team racers and others who have actively contributed back to high school and college sailing. These sailors must have spent a minimum of two full days to help run, umpire, judge, or coach at a college or high school sailing event in this academic year.
