US Sailing Partners with Clever Pig in Youth Racing Development Initiative

In 2007, The Southport Sailing Foundation developed the original Clever Pig website with the goal of providing youth sailors with the information required to manage a successful campaign. The Foundation invested in a practical online program that would empower sailors to organize their own campaigns, and provide Clever Pig’s resources to all sailors at no cost.

Clever Pig provides the necessary guidance and direction for sailors at every step of the campaign process.
• Defining a successful campaign, how to get started, and setting expectations.
• How to select a coach with tips on what to look for and where to find the right coach.
• A coach finder database gives visitors the chance to learn more about coaches.
• Selecting a class and finding a teammate through a crew finder source.
• The latest training tips and developments in sports psychology to maximize results on the water.
• Information on campaign financing, fundraising, and applying for grants.

US Sailing, along with the Southport Sailing Foundation, Chicago Match Race Center, Sailing Foundation of New York, Junior Sailing Association of Long Island Sound, and California International Sailing Association (CISA), has pulled together an effective listing of services and programs to enhance the website for users from around the country.

The development of youth sailing in the United States is paramount at US Sailing. Young sailors in search of great competition, quality coaching instruction and a fun time on and off the water have been participating at US Sailing youth racing events for years. The USA Junior Olympic Sailing Festival (JO) and the US Sailing Championships series collectively organize a combined 27 regattas around the country for youth sailors from June through December. These events are designed to promote the enjoyment of sailing, develop the skills of young sailors, and to provide a pathway for hopeful Olympic competitors. These events are often preceded by clinics conducted by coaches provided by US Sailing.

2013 U.S. Jr. Women's Doublehanded Championship

Locals Smith and Davidson Capture U.S. Junior Women's Doublehanded Championship

CORONA DEL MAR, Calif. (June 27, 2013) – Carolyn Smith (Newport Beach, Calif.) and Bayley Davidson (Costa Mesa, Calif.) cashed in on their fourth consecutive attempt to win the Ida Lewis Trophy at the 2013 U.S. Junior Women's Doublehanded Championship, hosted by the Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club. The duo tallied a 3-4-2-4 scoring line in Thursday's third and final day of racing to win the title by eight points over contenders Cassie Obel (Marina del Rey, Calif.) and Annika Garrett (Culver City, Calif.). Smith and Davidson were representing the Newport Harbor Yacht Club and Balboa Yacht Club this week.13 usjwdc winners

Smith and Davidson placed second at least year's U.S. Junior Women's Doublehanded Championship on Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota. They were the most consistent team this week. Smith and Davidson finished outside the top five just twice through 10 races. Making a hard charge today to place third was the team of Elena VandenBerg (Annapolis, Md.) and Lilla Salvesen (Edgewater, Md.). They won Race 9 and finished second in Race 10. Thursday's leaders Alie and Liza Toppa finished fourth (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.).

There were plenty of Black Flags and OCS calls throughout the three-day championship. “Starts are the most crucial part of the entire race," said Smith. "However, finding that happy medium between a competitive start and OCS is difficult."

“It’s our first big win,” exclaimed Davidson, who came up short in last year's championship by one point. “That haunted us,” Smith added.

Winning in their home port in their final U.S. Junior Women's Doublehanded Championship was even sweeter. Smith and Davidson will find themselves on opposing college sailing teams next year. Smith will be attending St. Mary's (Md.) and Davidson is headed for the College of Charleston.

Lucy Wilmot (Orinda, Calif.) and Maya Dornbrand-Lo (Berkeley, Calif.), representing San Francisco, Richmond and Encinal Yacht Clubs, received the C. Thomas Clagett, Jr. Sportsmanship Award by popular vote of their peers.

“Lucy is always cheerful and sees the bright side of things,” said fellow competitor Jessica McJones. “Maya has a great sense of humor, and they are always positive – even when black-flagged."

CISA Alumni at 2013 College Sailing Nationals

CISA Alumni Bring Home Honors at 2013 College Sailing Nationals

2013 college nationals start

The 2013 College Sailing National Championships recently wrapped up in St. Petersburg, Florida but not before our CISA Alumni walked away with a handful of awards.

A committee of coaches who represent the seven conferences in the ICSA selects the ICSA All-America Team. For selecting the All-Americans the committee evaluates a competitor based on their competitive record in inter-conference competition as well as conference and national championships. The committee analyzes how this record compares to fellow competitors, the quality of the competition the record was achieved in, the span of the record over the fall and spring seasons, results achieved with different crews, and how the record compares to previous All-American winners in past years. Tonight the 2,000th All-American was named.

For All-American crew selections, the committee uses criteria similar to skipper selection, but also considers: demonstrated leadership (may consider seniority), outstanding body mechanics and boat handling skills as well as proven ability to improve the results of the skipper(s) with whom he or she sails.
