Falmouth, MA (July 24, 2016) – The 2016 U.S. Club 420 National Championship finished up today hosted by the Falmouth Yacht Club with the Club 420 Association on Nantucket Sound. One hundred and fifty boats competed in the event.
After yesterday’s racing, the 150 boats were divided into Gold and Silver Medal fleets, 82 boats in Gold and 68 in Silver. The scores from the Qualifying Round carried over into the Medal Round.
The harbor start was postponed this morning due to a dying Northerly wind, but it started to build again around 10 a.m. once it shifted to the South. The sailors hit the water soon after the wind filled in and the race officials had the scores and fleets sorted out after yesterday’s results.
Today was sunny and the winds were from the South Southwest around 7-12 knots, warm temperatures got up to 80 degrees. Racing wrapped up at the cutoff time around 3:30 p.m. There were two races completed in both fleets today. Although the race committee tried to complete a third race in the Gold fleet, it was a general recall and the time for the last warning of the day ran out before another race could be started.
