Shields Ocean - Great Lakes Challenge Cup
Shields Fleet #1 and the Larchmont Yacht Club (Organizing Authority)
June 23 to June 25, 2017
Larchmont, New York
The series is limited to the number of charter boats that Shields Fleet #1 can make available. Shields Fleet #1 will announce the number of available boats by April 1st, 2017. Only one entry per visiting fleet recognized by the Shields Nationals Class Association will be accepted. Priority will be on a “first come first serve” basis based on paid fee received, with one boat reserved for Shields Fleet #1. After June 1, all unallocated boats will be assigned to other Shields Fleet #1 entries. After April 1, 2017, Shields Fleet #1 will, at its discretion, attempt to add additional boats particularly if the event is over-subscribed.
The regatta will be sailed in Shields Class sailboats provided by Shields Fleet #1 and distributed by random assignment. No skipper shall sail in a boat on which he is the owner or a regular helmsman. Each entry must provide their own sails that conform to Shields Class Rules from a boat in their home fleet.
