Finn USA National, North American, and Masters North American Championships are the biggest events for the Finn Class in North America besides Miami Word Sailing Cup, Round 2. These 3 events are Type 1 regattas that have the biggest participation rates and give the most amount of points for USAFA rankings. The USAFA leadership made a decision to forecast the schedule for the next 6 years and spread these major events equally among the West, East, Gulf Coasts, and the Great Lakes regions. These parts of the country have seen the biggest growth of the Finn activity in recent years. Following the principles of equal opportunity and fair distribution among all the coasts and the major fleets. Bids for 2022/23 events can be submitted via email to secretary@finnusa.org

The crew

We have decided on the dates for Wickford Regatta 2024. After checking the dates for other potentially conflicting events and doing our best to avoid as many as possible we have decided on June 8-9 which is the 2nd weekend in June. The calendar moves back 2 days in 2024 so the net date change is only 5 days and we will avoid conflicts with the NYYC Annual Regatta and the Brooke Gonzalez Clinic at Sail Newport.  Sadly we will still conflict with the Act exams and are uncertain about the High School Nationals.

We are looking forward to welcoming all your of classes next June and ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEE THAT THE WEATHER WILL BE BETTER THAN IT WAS THIS YEAR
