The 2018 Southern Circuit is nearly two months out!

Join us March 23-30 for the Winter and Mid-Winter Championships!

60th Annual Midwinter Championship, Miami - March 27-30, 2018

The Circuit takes place the week right before the Easter Holiday. Many schools have this week off. This is great because many families can sail the circuit! But this also means many other families will be visiting Florida around the same time. MAKE YOUR HOTEL RESERVATIONS Now! The good places will sell out! Hotel Block Information for St Pete is posted in the ILCA Event Calendar. 

The Mentor Program is BACK and is going to be the BEST YET! Nick Turney from Turney Sailing Services has volunteered his time to bring you this program and we have NEW features lined up for 2018. Click on the links above for more information. 

Many trophies and honors will be awarded! Master Winter Championship in St Pete. Mid Fleet Awards at both regattas.
