IODA North American Championship

Congrats to all our sailors who participated in the IODA North American Championship. SailStrong had a great showing in both the Fleet and Team Racing Championships.

In the Fleet racing Thomas Rice was very close to the Top 5 but a couple tough races to end the event had him finishing 9th. Always great to see our sailors competing with the top sailors in the world with last year’s World Champion from Singapore in attendance. Following Thomas in Gold Fleet was Sam Bruce in 44th and Maddie Hawkins in 54th, both in their first IODA event. Michael Pinto, also making his first appearance in an IODA regatta, finished 22nd in Silver Fleet.

In team racing, Thomas Rice was part of Team USA 1 which won the North American Optimist Team Racing Championship.

Congrats to you all on your performances and we look forward to you all bringing back that experience to the group.
