The Great Oaks Invitational Regatta
November 9-11, 2012
The Great Oaks Invitational provides a national-level regatta for developing teams, creating an opportunity to compete with peers as a team grows in numbers and skill. A system of regattas for new teams within Districts, in local leagues and District-wide, provides for development of skills and attitudes, and identifies teams ready to go forward to a national-level event.
The Great Oaks Invitational Regatta was introduced into the ISSA calendar November 13-14, 1999, hosted by Southern Yacht Club in New Orleans. All schools that are either new to ISSA or ones that have not qualified for an ISSA doublehanded dinghy championship (Baker or Mallory) in the past four years are eligible to participate. Districts may have qualifiers to fill their allocations. A team is comprised of no fewer than two nor more than four sailors who must be full-time students in the school they represent.
