Consistency Guaranteed Tommy Sitzmann/Luke Woodworth the Title
Biscayne Bay threw it all at the i420 teams competing for the 2021 North American Championship, with conditions that ranged from a very brisk 12-22 knot first day, to a drifter second day, followed by a marginal trapping final day filled with very fluky shifts and breeze direction changes.
After the dust settled in this eight-race regatta, teams powered by North Sails finished 1,2,5,6,8. North Sails i420 inventory includes three mainsails (M-7, M-9, and M-11), two jibs (J-12 & J-13), and two spinnakers (S1 and S5). These sails are proven winners, and our range offers teams the opportunity to choose the best fit for their particular sailing style. We are happy to help, so please don’t hesitate to reach out for more information.
Defending 2020 North American Champions, brothers Justin and Mitchell Callahan sailed a very consistent event with no result out of the top ten, and (except for a retirement in race 4 due to a rudder pin failure) pushed the eventual 2021 regatta champions Tommy Sitzmann/Luke Woodworth very hard all weekend. In the end, Sitzmann/Woodworth sailed an impressively consistent series themselves, with two bullets and no race finish out of the top 4.
Powered by North Sails, Gitana Team Skipper, Charles Caudrelier, crossed the finish line off the coast of Brest, France, on February 27th, to win the ARKEA Ultim Challenge. The ARKEA Ultim Challenge is the first-ever solo multihull race around the world and was sailed in 32m Ultim Trimarans – true Giants of the Sea.
The America's Cup kicked off with its first Preliminary Regatta in Vilanova i La Geltrú, Spain. Sailed in the new AC40 one design class, this event was a milestone in the long road to the 37th edition of the famed race which will be sailed in Barcelona from August to October 2024.
