J/22 Class Announces Youth Scholarship Boat Program

J/22 Youth Sailing (Newport, RI)- The J/22 Class Association is excited to introduce its Youth Scholarship Boat Program!  The program, which is modeled after the Lightning Class Boat Grant Program, will award a fully outfitted J/22 (complete with trailer) to a promising youth team for the entire sailing season.

The award recipients will be expected to race the J/22 Scholarship Boat in several high profile, world-class J/22 regattas (including the 2016 J/22 Worlds in Kingston, Ontario); and participate in various Scholarship Program promotional events.

The Program is intended to encourage talented youth sailors (skippers aged 19-29) to experience the J/22 and the Class’s tremendous community of one-design sailors- at virtually no cost. It is our hope that recipients’ experience in the Program will escalate their level of competitiveness and inspire them to accomplish great things in the sailing world.
