Report by US International 420 Class Association
Congratulations to Richard and Elle Sykes, our 2023 North American Champions. The sibling team sailed a very consistent 8-race regatta, winning 5 races, in conditions that varied widely from 20+ to drifting over the 3 day event.
Demonstrating the versatility of the I420 in varied conditions and sailor configurations, the top 3 finishers in the 25-boat fleet were each of a different configuration.
Congrats to the second place team of Helena Borcherding/Violet Martin, also the top women's team - who held off a late challenge from the 3rd place finisher - the men's team of Will Kulas/Grant Schmidt.
Rounding out the top 5 were Robert Ulmer/Annabel Woodworth in 4th and Leo Robillard/Jack Murphy in 5th.
A huge thanks to Coconut Grove Sailing Club for running a terrific regatta is challenging conditions - both with a lot of wind, and none.
