U20 North American Championship Results
Lake Norman, North Carolina once again proved to be a great venue in the fall for the 2023 Ultimate 20 North American Championships held at LNYC. 26 boats registered meant that this would be the largest attended Championship in the history of the Class. With forecasted rain (which the area needed very much) and big breeze on tap, it didn't disappoint. Four races were held on the first of a three day regatta in solid 15-20+ knot breeze with the afore mentioned rain. Steve Shaw with crew Tim Porter and Dave Rink aboard Mighty Mouse (#21) ran away with the day and a scorecard of 1,1,2,2. The following day of racing was met with much lighter breeze but still good sailing conditions. Mark Aspland (#88) with Thistle National Champion Brad Russell as crew were able to boatspeed their way to the daily award while posting a 1,4,1. Sunday brought sunshine in the morning with blue skies and perfect 8-12 knot winds. The Mighty Mouse was in top form posting the final 1,4,1 to lock up the championship with wins in 5 of the 10 races held. This marked the second year in a row and third time total that Steve and Tim have paired to take the title. Be sure to make plans to be at next years event and try to take the top spot away!
