2020 US 420 National Championship results
60 sailors wrapped an hectic 2020 in best shape at the US 420 National Championships - 58th Orange Bowl Regatta, played from Dec. 26th to 30th and organised by Coconut Grove Sailing Club. A nice ending to a pretty crazy year with a terrific 11-race series over 4-days of mostly big-air.
Tommy Sitzmann / Luke Woodworth USA were the overall champions after sailing a very consistent regatta, including 5 bullets in the 30-boat fleet. Griggs Diemar / Emery Diemar USA were a close second, and Thomas Hall / Liam O'Keefe USA just a few points behind in third.
Vanessa Lahrkamp / Katherine McNamara USA were Women's champions, scoring 3 bullets and finishing 4th overall, only 1 point ahead of Oliver Hurwitz / Francesca Edmands USA on fifth.
A huge thanks to Coconut Grove Sailing Club for hosting the US National Championship this year (as they have done for the past 10+ years), and massive amount of extra work that went into making the regatta happen, and ensuring a covid-safe environment.
