HP Series Criteria for 2020 Only

HP Series Criteria for 2020 Only

We will be offering a High Point Award to the top three sailors in each class.  Scores from each sailor’s four best results will be used to calculate the score.  There will be NO factored events.

Since many of our member clubs do not have programs this year, we will not be awarding the CBYRA sanctioned High Point Trophy.  This will be for 2020 only.  Instead, we will be presenting The Chesapeake Experience Award, sponsored by The Chesapeake Experience.  The Chesapeake Experience is a community boating center whose mission is to simply get people on the water.  This program’s theory values a connection to the water where individuals develop their self-confidence, inner strength, determination, and resiliency.

2020 High Point Qualification Requirements

In order to qualify for the final standings and High Point Awards, sailors need to;

  1. be a current CBYRA Junior Member (or part of a CBYRA family membership).  Individual Junior Memberships are available as well as family memberships.  Join or Renew
  2. enter ‘the Series’ by completing the series registration form.  There are fees charged to register and enter individual events, but there is no fee to complete the series registration process, which is for administrative and scorekeeping purposes only. 
  3. top 4 scores from total regattas attended  

Significant effort goes into scheduling and coordinating the regattas that comprise the Junior HP series, and the CBYRA organization provides the structure and authority of the Junior Division Committee to do this. The majority of the effort is provided by volunteers, but CBYRA does have expenses to administer the organization so your membership and support is needed.

Regardless of your membership status or regatta participation, results will be recorded and factored into the overall competitor formula.  However, at the end of the year, you will not qualify for the final standings or awards without meeting the three basic requirements stated above.  In previous years, a number of junior sailors have sailed in sufficient events to win Highpoint awards, but failed to qualify for these prestigious awards because they didn’t join CBYRA.  Make sure this doesn’t happen to you, and join early!
