March 22, 2023
The USODA Regatta Committee and Board of Directors is happy to announce that Hampton Yacht Club has generously stepped in to host our three National Championships in 2023 as follows:
Team Race National Championship - Wednesday, July 26 - Friday, July 28
Girls National Championship - Sunday, July 30
Fleet National Championship - Monday, July 31 - Thursday August 3
To accommodate the Class, and run all three events, there will be a lay day for all competitors on Saturday, July 29th. Hampton Yacht Club is hosting a 1-day big boat regatta on this date, and competitors will not have access to the Club or launching facilities in order to provide needed parking and other amenities to their big boat regatta participants. But there are lots of fun things to do in the area, including a day at the beach, Busch Gardens, and Colonial Williamsburg, just to name a few!
The Class is beyond grateful to our friends at Hampton Yacht Club for their support and willingness to host this important event on such short notice, and we know they will run a fantastic regatta for our young sailors. We also wish to thank the other clubs and organizations that answered our call for help for their offers, time and patience as we navigated this selection process.
More information will be posted on the event website for each championship very soon, so please check back often.
Once again, a huge shout-out to Hampton Yacht Club for their continued support of USODA!
