USAFA Major Event Schedule - Submit your 2022/2023 bids today!

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

From the Organizing Authority: We strongly encourage folks who might attend, to think about accommodations.  If you are not a camper, it’s imperative to lock in a hotel reservation *NOW*. There is a horse race track nearby, & Saratoga Springs is a beautiful resort town with much to do, so there is much competition from NYC & Boston crowds for hotels in the summer. Otherwise, it’s probably a 50 min drive to the next hotel cluster.

In 1969, a group of enthusiastic sailors decided to establish CORK to host international sailing events off Kingston. The area offers some of the best fresh-water sailing in the world, excellent wind and wave conditions, and is a short distance from shore to the race courses. Leading up to the 1976 Olympics, the CORK regatta offered excellent training for sailors, coaches and officials and has since become a fixture on the international calendar.
