Flying Scot Gulf District Championship Trifecta, Southern Yacht Club, New Orleans, La
The Flying Scot Class will be sailing for three different perpetual trophies as part of the 2013 Juby Wynne Memorial Regatta: The Commissioner General Trophy, the Charles L Dees Memorial Trophy and the Cock-of-the-Walk Trophy. Each has its own individual criteria.
The Commissioner General Trophy is presented to the overall winner of the Flying Scot Class. The boat and crew must comply with general pertinent Flying Scot Sailing Association (FSSA) rules’
The Charles L. Dees Memorial Trophy is presented to the winner of the FSSA Gulf District Championship . The boat and crew must comply with FSSA sanctioned event rules. The skipper must be a paid member of the FSSA and be a member of a fleet in the Gulf District.
The Cock-of-the-Walk Trophy is presented to the winner of the GYA Flying Scot Championship . Entrants (skippers only) shall be a member of a GYA Club. There is no limit to the number of entries per club. The same crew shall sail all series races. The minimum crew weight shall be 390 pounds live weight. Boats, sails and equipment may be either club owned or privately owned. (See GYA Reg 45).
Everyone races together and scored for the total FS fleet. Whoever meets the criteria of the sub-fleets, ie Districts and/or Cock of the Walk (COW), first will be awarded those trophies. For example, let’s say a boat comes in from Dallas and wins the regatta, Carrie & I finish 2nd and a Mobile YC team weighing 400 pounds third. The Dallas skipper would win the Commissioner General Trophy for winning the regatta overall (but nothing else because he is not a member of the FSSA Gulf District or a GYA club), Carrie & I would win the Gulf Districts (but not the COW because we do not weigh the required 390 pounds), and the MYC Team would win the COW.
SYC provides marker trophies for the overall positions and we will provide markers for the top 3 in the Scot Districts.
