Do You Qualify for the 2020 SpinSheet Racing Team?
We created the SpinSheet Racing Team for Chesapeake sailors who give the season their all by attending as many regattas as possible, bringing others into the sport, and making their boats go fast, no matter the weather. Does that sound like you?
To qualify for the 2020 team, you must acquire 25 points by Tuesday, December 15 by meeting criteria from the list below. All regattas must take place on the waters of the Chesapeake Bay or its immediate tributaries. You do not have to be racing the same boat for every race or regatta. All participants will receive a tech shirt from Team One Newport, will be included in the list of team members in SpinSheet, and will be invited to our first ever virtual SpinSheet Rock Star Celebration!
Below find our 2020 points system. You must log your points at spinsheet.com/racing-team. You may earn points two or more times for one type of event. For example, if you do two charity regattas, you may earn 10 points:
