Clearwater Regatta Promises Top Competition for Optimist Sailors
Many of last year's sailors went on to qualify for North Americans, British Nationals, Asians, Europeans & Worlds.

Posted Wednesday, January 18, 2012

The second annual *Team FOR Invitational Regatta* will be held on March 3-4, 2012 at the Clearwater Community Sailing Center in Florida. This event offers top competition, excellent training, and a great time for
those who attend. USA sailor participation is limited to those who are "Team Trials Qualified." International Opti sailors are welcome to request an invitation by emailing info@teamfor.com.

Registration link <http://xrl.us/T4regattaREGISTER> is open and online at
Regatta Network: http://xrl.us/T4regattaREGISTER.

Clearwater, a beachfront community in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, is a terrific venue and should feature good wind and warm weather. In addition, Coach Peter Strong of SailStrong is running an optional on-site clinic
during the week leading up to our regatta, making the trip even more worthwhile: http://sailstrong.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/springclinicflier.jpg.

Accommodations in this area are available in a wide price range, and both budget and fine dining options are plentiful. Clearwater has its own airport (PIE), www.fly2pie.com, and is within a reasonable driving distance
of several other facilities, including Tampa International (TPA), www.tampaairport.com, Sarasota-Bradenton (SRQ), www.srq-airport.com, and Orlando International (MCO), www.orlandoairports.net.

Last year's Team FOR Invitational Regatta participants included the 2011 Team Trials winner; numerous USNT members; and many sailors who went on to qualify for international events including North Americans, British
Nationals, Asians, Europeans, and Worlds.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the regatta committee at info@teamfor.com. You may also visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/teamfor. *The regatta committee is happy to help
coordinate coach boat coverage for sailors unable to attend with their coaches. * Please email* *so possible arrangements can be made or suggested.
