Commodore’s Cup

 

2016 Commodore’s Cup Regatta Results

LMSC, this year,  introduces its first annual Commodore’s Cup sailing tournament.  In a format popular with sailing clubs like ours, top sailors from other competitive events throughout the season come together in a single one design regatta for a chance to be “Club Champion” of the year.  Two days of one design sailing fun in a regatta requiring no travel is an opportunity not to be missed. 

Goals for this “Champion of Champions” competition are to reward those who have worked hard to improve their skills, have regularly participated in LMSC sailing events, and to provide a quality sailing regatta involving sailors from all the fleets in our club.
The Commodore’s Cup is scheduled at the end of our regular sailing season after completion of the Rodesiler Series and Fleet Championships.  It will be a one day event for qualifying competitors sailing in Flying Scot class sailboats without spinnakers in a short course racing format.

Event administrators are:
  • Tommy Weaver – Sailing Chairman – 735-0011
  • Chris Mielke – PHRF Fleet Captain – 208-908-8729
  • Ryan Gaskin – Flying Scot Fleet Captain – 865-2777

For visual reference, the Commodore’s Cup selection process is outlined in this flow chart.  Details of the process are:
  • Winners in each of several competitive categories  will qualify as a Commodore’s Cup competitor. Categories are numbered 1 through 7.  Selection begins with category 1 and continues until there is one competitor from each category.
  • A winner in two categories must choose his or her qualifying category, allowing the second place finisher to qualify in the category not selected .
  • Selection categories are ordered based on competitive significance of individual events and fleet size.
  • Up to 12 competitors may qualify, if boats are available.  Once a winner qualifies in each of 7 categories, additional competitors may qualify. Selection begins again with category 1.

For an illustrated explanation of the selection process, here is a humorous but thoroughly detailed reference.
