Sailing’s version of “one-on-one” competition will seize the spotlight this week as the energy and passion of match racing takes center stage in Chicago. The 51st U.S. Match Racing Championship, hosted by the Chicago Yacht Club, features ten talented teams comprised of both men and women skippers and crew, who will race for the coveted Prince of Wales Bowl over three days.
Watch live streaming of the racing with commentary from hosts Josh Toso and Laura Beigel on Saturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21. Follow US Sailing on Facebook for live streaming updates and alerts.
Two-time event champion Mike Ingham (Rochester, N.Y.) and International Women’s Keelboat Champion Megan Ploch (Pelham, N.Y.) headline the 44th Championship of Champions regatta. Best described as a melting pot for one-design class champions, the regatta begins Friday, Oct. 19, at the Atlanta Yacht Club (Acworth, Ga.) with 17 crews set to battle for the Jack Brown Trophy.
The Extreme Sailing Series™ will return to San Diego for the second consecutive year on October 18-21 and the US Sailing Education Zone will be a featured attraction for attendees again. The US Sailing Education Zone will provide fun learning activities for people of all ages as part of the US Sailing Reach Initiative for STEM education and sport outreach. Through interactive and hands-on activities, event attendees will have the opportunity to learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics through the sport of sailing and sustainability.
