Spring Memo #7 (Feb 28, 2017)

Posted on February 28, 2017

Greetings coaches, 

March 1st is the start of Meteorological Spring and the opening day of registration for all three NESSA Spring Championships.  Registrations should go live at 0900 tomorrow.  I say should b/c we are beta testing the new ISSA registration system.  I am not sure that the new system does any more for us than a Google Doc does, except it is tied directly to the NESSA PayPal payment system.  In other words, you will have to pay the registration fee for the O'Day and the Herreshoff to complete the registration process.  Here are some details.  Read carefully and let me know if there are any problems tomorrow morning.

 

1. NESSA Fleet Racing Championship (O'Day Trophy)

  • You will find the registration link under "REG" next to the O'Day Trophy line on the NESSA schedule page.  
  • DO NOT try to register at any of the qualifying regatta sites.
  • Chose your preference of sites (1st, 2nd, 3rd).  Final decision will be made by the NESSA VP
  • After you fill in all the information, you will be directed to a payment page.  
  • Once paid, you will be registered and you should get a confirmation e-mail
  • Please make sure that you only register & pay once; refunds will not be granted for over zealous registrations.

2. NESSA Women's Championship (Herreshoff Trophy)

  • You will find the registration link under "REG" next to the Herreshoff Trophy line on the NESSA schedule page.  
  • DO NOT try to register at any of the qualifying regatta sites.
  • Chose your preference of sites (1st, 2nd).  Final decision will be made by the NESSA VP
  • After you fill in all the information, you will be directed to a payment page.  
  • Once paid, you will be registered and you should get a confirmation e-mail
  • Please make sure that you only register & pay once; refunds will not be granted for over zealous registrations.

 

3. NESSA Team Racing Championship & Tournament (Mark & Terk Trophies)

  • You will register your Team using a Google Doc link that can be found under "REG" next to the NESSA Team Racing Championship (Mark Trophy) or the NESSA Team Racing Tournament (Terk Trophy) Lines on the NESSA Schedule page.  Both links take you to the same place. Only register once please.
  • You will not be asked to pay at this time.  Event fees ($50/ school) will be collected at the regatta site since we will not know which 16 schools qualify until May.
  • If you hope to represent NESSA at either the Baker or the NIT, you must submit a airline ticket deposit of $500.  This can be done by clicking the PayPal link on the right side of the NESSA homepage.  Here is the list of schools that rolled their 2016 deposits over to 2017.
    • Barnstable HS
    • Brunswick School
    • Cape Cod Academy
    • Darien HS
    • Duxbury HS
    • Fairfield Prep
    • Hotchkiss School
    • Milton Academy
    • North Kingstown HS
