Clear evidence of the escalating popularity of the International 420 Class Association was the turn-out of thirty-nine teams featuring plenty of young talent, including the recently crowned the USA's Youth Sailing World Championships gold medallists Carmen Cowles/Emma Cowles and Youth Worlds silver medallists in the boys Thomas Rice/Trevor Bornarth. Lining up alongside them were plenty more podium performers in the mix including the  2017 420 Ladies Europeans bronze medallists Emma Kaneti/Ciara Rodriguez-Horan, alongside the 420 European U17 bronze medallists Max Anker/Leyton Borcherding, as well as the 2017 420 Junior Europeans silver medallist Dylan Ascencios racing with new crew William George

The Youth Worlds Silver medalist Tom Rice/Trevor Bornarth took the top spot, nudging out JC Hermus/Walter Henry in the final race with a bullet, which put them ahead by a tight 2 points.

Youth Worlds Gold medalists Carmen Cowles/Emma Cowles had a strong final day, including a bullet in race 7, moving up into the 3rd place position to claim the bronze medals and 420 North American Women’s title.
