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 email@example.com

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 email@example.com.
