2018 MISSA Keelboat Qualifier


September 28-30, 2018


The MISSA Keelboat Qualifier is held annually to determine the team from the Midwest that will represent MISSA at the National Keelboat Invitational in St. Petersburg, Florida. This year, the MISSA Keelboat Qualifier will be hosted by Chicago yacht Club and sailed in Sonars.

ALL INTERESTED TEAMS SHOULD COMPLETE THE REGISTRATION EVEN IF “WAITLIST” IS INDICATED. The NOR provides for the possibility of expanding the size of the regatta through prequalifiers, which will be determined based on total registration. 

9/25/18 UPDATE: There were 16 teams that registered by the deadline, and we want all 16 to be able to compete, so we are doing a two-round regatta.  The fleet has been split into two groups, and each fleet of 8 will have an elimination round on Saturday. Group 1 will start Saturday morning, they will attempt to get in at 3-8 races, and then do the same number in Group 2. Sunday, there will be a Championship round with the top 4 from each group.  There will be no racing on Friday, and no practice session available. Watch for the NOR Amendment from CYC confirming the above.
