2021 Finn North American Championships

Start date: September 30, 2021

End date: October 3, 2021

Location: Pass Christian, MS

After two and a half months of search and deliberations the 2021 North American Championship (NAC) has been moved from CORK, Kingston, Canada to the Pass Christian Yacht Club, Pass Christian, MS, USA. The event will take place 30 September to 03 October, 2021.

This alternate location and dates will allow for more diverse attendance across the North-American continent. In the wake of the deteriorating COVID-19 situation in Canada and continues lockdowns, USAFA made decision to find an alternate NAC site in 2021.

We would like to remind everyone the bids are open for the 2022 and 2023 U.S. Nationals, North American Championship, and North American Masters Championship. Please submit your bids/proposals to

This is the home of the North American Finn Sailing where you will find our race calendar, information on regattas, sailing technique and advice, a forum & marketplace plus all the info you need to start Finn sailing.

The Finn is an outstanding boat originally designed by Rickard Sarby for a contest to find a boat for Scandinavian sailing and the 1952 Olympics.  Since then it has been featured in every Olympics.

An outstanding technical boat that favors boat handling and tactics over straight line speed.  With the unlimited pumping downwind in over 10 kts, it is a truly physical boat that rewards the athlete willing to work hard.

Most dinghies are built for smaller stature people but not so the Finn.  The Finn is a big man's boat with average crew weight over 200 lbs.

The great attraction of the Finn is that you don’t need a brand new boat to be competitive – top regattas are regularly won by 10-yr-old boats.

A growing route in for sailors on a budget is the ‘Classic with Carbon’ option – any pre-1985 hull super-charged with a second-hand modern rig. Classic boats are warmly welcomed at all NA Finn Class events and are often seen in the top 10 with the Modern Race Boats.
