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 firstname.lastname@example.org

The second annual Thames River Finn Championship will be held at Thames Yacht Club in New London, Connecticut on Saturday, October 7th. In the last year, Thames Yacht Club members acquired & rebuilt seven classic Finns. Rob Scalia, who won last year’s regatta, will be defending his title and Finn sailors from other clubs are looking forward to sailing again this year. Our goal is to have ten Finns sailing this year. There is no entry fee or registration form for this regatta. Please email me (email@example.com) to register for the regatta and let me know if you would like to borrow a Finn. We will have the appropriate waivers and release forms available the day of the race.
