Who will make the 2022 SpinSheet Racing Team?
The SpinSheet Racing Team, powered by Team One Newport, invites all racing sailors to enter our challenge and get credit for competing in a large number of regattas in a wide variety of formats, regardless of their finishes.
This team was inspired by and made for Chesapeake sailors who give the season their all, cultivating the sport, inspiring others, and making their boats go fast, no matter the weather.
To qualify for this year's SpinSheet Racing Team, you must acquire 25 points by December 12, 2022 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.
Submit your SpinSheet Racing Team score by December 12

- Series (fall, weeknight, frostbite) - 5 points per series, not race
- Charity regatta/race - 5 points
