2016 Regatta Calendar

A change was made at the annual business meeting to the finishing impact of the Harvest Cup. Previously, the results of one year’s Harvest Cup were counted toward qualifying for the next year’s Fleet Championship points. It was decided that the top Harvest Cup finishers thus started the racing season with an advantage over the rest of the fleet. The 2015 Harvest Cup results were promised to count toward the 2016 Fleet Championship, and that will be honored. However, the 2016 Harvest Cup will be its own reward, and will not count toward the 2017 Fleet Championship.

Additionally, the 2016 Captain’s Challenge was added as a Harvest Cup qualifier. This addition increases the potential number of qualifying skippers. Since the Harvest Cup is a round-robin and should be completed in a reasonable timeframe, it was also decided to limit the number of participants to the top six finishing skippers, with any ties being resolved by Fleet Championship points earned at the time of the Harvest Cup. Should any of the top six be unavailable and there are more than six qualifiers, lower-finishing qualifiers will round out the field up to six skippers.
