We have had the following report from Larry Law, President of the USA International 420 Class: "I-420 has its first regatta in Miami in a decade. For the first time in over a decade the International 420 Racing Dinghy has returned to the waters off Miami to compete in the annual Orange Bowl Regatta held at the prestigious Coral Reef Yacht Club in Coral Gables, Florida. 22 boats representing four countries competed for, what the US I-420 Class Association established as its first North American Championship of the new Millennia. The North American Championship is one of the major qualifier events of the selection criteria for the upcoming US I-420 World Championship Team that is going to be competing in Haifa, Israel this coming summer. Congratulations to Morgan Kiss and Katia DaSilva for their performance in winning this event”. See Final Results website.
