About the Series

Founded in 2015 to create a vibrant youth racing scene on the Treasure Coast that would both increase sailors' confidence and foster lasting friendships, the Florida East Coast Series has grown to encompass sailors and teams from the Upper Keys to Daytona Beach.    The series is comprised of 8 regattas per year.  There is a 4 regatta fall series and a 4 regatta spring series.  125 sailors competed in our fall 2019 series.

The Series is open to youth sailors age 8 – 18.  Adults may participate in the O’Pen Bic and 420 fleets but will not be eligible to receive series trophies.   All of the regattas in the series are stand-alone regattas as well as being part of the overall series.   Each regatta score is compiled to determine the series winners – competitors do not need to register separately for the series.  

The winner of the series in each class is  awarded the Florida East Coast Series Champion Perpetual Trophy.
