We have always been, and will continue to be, an “open” team for any sailor – local or otherwise.
In 2008, we implemented a requirement that sailors attend five practices in order to sail with LISOT at a travel regatta. This policy worked well and will continue for 2009.
Since 2009 Team Trials is in our backyard at Noroton YC, we are further expanding this policy to apply to the Team Trials regatta and local practices the last two weeks in April before Team Trials. In addition, all practices in late April (beginning April 18th) will be limited to only those sailors that will be sailing with LISOT at Team Trials.
These policies are solely to assure that our sailors know their coaches, and our coaches know the sailors they will coach at Team Trials.
If you do not plan to sail with LISOT at Team Trials, we hope you can understand the need for this policy.
