Red White & Blue Chip Invitees
Invitations are earned in two ways: Regatta Invitations and Lake/Club Invitations
1.) Designated open regattas in the Midwest, based on sailing RWB courses and the number of boats typically entered, are considered qualifiers. The top two overall finishers earn a RWB invitation but if one of them has already received an invitation, we go on “down” the results list. In other words, duplicates are filled by way of the qualifying regatta. The ILYA Championships is granted five invitations and all “declines” are filled from ILYA Champs results. (Note: invitees are requested to notify the regatta chair asap if not able to attend).
2.) Each lake or club with an active Opti fleet is eligible for one RWB Chip invitation to award as it chooses (typically to its highest on-lake series sailor, who has not received a regatta qualifier invitation). An official of each club should contact Cathy Debbink (firstname.lastname@example.org; 262-569-0776) to designate the club invitee. This should be awarded after all Regatta based invitations have been awarded.
Invited sailors may register online or use the forms on www.labelleyachtclub.org to enter the regatta. All invited sailors are requested to email email@example.com with “intent” to participate as soon as possible.
All registrations are to be complete by August 10 at 10 AM. Any clarification or disputes regarded invitations will be handled by the Regatta Chair. List below was updated Aug 12 and will be updated as 2011 invitations are sent out.
NOTE: Lakes are encouraged to wait until all regatta invitees are identified before awarding Club invitations, unless fairly certain that recipient will not receive a regatta based invitation. Please contact Cathy Debbink at 262-569-0776 if uncertain. However, Club invitations must be awarded by 8/6 so that recipient may immediately RSVP.
