Commodore’s Cup


2017 Commodore’s Cup Regatta Results

LMSC holds its annual Commodore’s Cup sailing tournament this year on October 28th at 1 pm.  In a format popular with sailing clubs like ours, winning 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.  A day 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.  Qualifying competitors will be notified immediately following our final qualifying series, the 2017 MC Scow Championship held on October 22nd, 2017.

Details of the Commodore’s Cup selection 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 chosen.
  • 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 competitor qualifies in each of the 7 categories, additional competitors may qualify with a second round of selection beginning in category 1.

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