2016 Rose Cup

Dear Newport Harbor Sailing Foundation,

Thank you very much for your generous support allowing me to participate in this year's 2016 U.S. Youth Match Racing Championship for the Rose Cup that was held in Sheboygan, Wisconsin on June 17 - 19th. The quality of racing is improving with each passing year as match racing becomes more available to the youth in the sport. Through the tough competition, team NHYC pulled through with a respectable 5th out of 10 other top youth match racers in the country. The opportunity was amazing, the boats were fun, the breeze was on, and I cannot thank you enough. NHYC was represented by Charlie Welsh as skipper and I was middle crew. The winner, Romain Screve from San Francisco, qualified for the 50th Annual International Junior Match Race Championship known as the Governor's Cup, to be held off Newport Beach on July 18 - 23, 2015.

Cheers,
Robert Garrett
