CENTRALS ON SODUS REGATTA
Considered one of the essential regattas in our region, the "Centrals" has evolved into one of the must "go-to" youth racing events on the calendar. Although primarily for youth in Laser, Opti, and Club 420 classes, it is an open event for all ages and other one-design classes of 4 or more registered boats. Although past classes have included Thistles, Flying Scotts, JY-15s, J/22s and J/24s, it has regularly been an annual event on the Laser District 9 circuit and, from time to time, the regional Lightning class fleet makes it a stop on their racing calendar too. In 2015, "Centrals on Sodus" served as the Area E qualifiers for the Sears, Bemis and Smythe USSA National Youth Championships, when over 85 boats competed.
We also host an area Inter-club event for juniors at SBJSA on Friday, the day before the Centrals Regatta. Sailors are welcome and invited to participate in both events and, with their families or sailing teammates, make the 3 day weekend a mini-vacation in Sodus Point! We are pleased to announce that as part of our inter-club event on July 9th, University of Jacksonville head coach John Faudree will hold a special clinic for all participants.
