StarDates

The basic premise is as simple as can be:  A single one-design series, made up of four winter weekend regattas and a 4-day Midwinter Championship*, all sailed out of a great club with an economical and convenient storage solution.  The Star Winter Series Presented By EFG International also sets your boat up perfectly for the Zagarino Masters Regatta in February, and the Bacardi Cup in March.

Here’s the official schedule*:

*Only your best three Winter Series weekend regattas will count toward the SWS Championship Presented By EFG International.  The Star Winter Series Champion will be the skipper with the lowest total score to be calculated as follows:    The sum of your overall place in the Star Midwinters multiplied by 2, plus your lowest three scores from the four SWS weekend regattas.  Series Championship ties will be decided by your place in Midwinters.
