Final results - 2021 USA Pacific Coast Championship
Report by US International 420 Class Association
Congrats to Sophia Devling / Carmen Berg USA for winning the 2021 Pacific Coast Championship, hosted by Santa Cruz Yacht Club. The girls bested a 16-boat fleet in light air (4-10 knots) with a 3-4 foot swell. The race committee did a great job of getting all the races off.
Rounding out the podium were Kyra Phelan / Annabel Woodworth USA in 2nd and Leo Robillard / AJ McKeon USA 3rd.
The racing come down to who could work the swell the best up wind - crew work on the trap was a big part of the weekend.
The sailors were treated to a talk on Saturday night by Olympian Stu McNay, which was arranged by a fellow Olympic sailor, HPC's Udi Gal.
