The 2018 U.S. Match Racing Champion is a familiar name, as Pearson Potts (Newport, R.I.) defended his 2017 title and became the holder of the Prince of Wales Bowl after tight racing in Chicago.
Bill Draheim (Royse City, Texas) and Rod Favela (Heath, Texas) rode a string of three victories in four races to win the 44th Championship of Champions regatta, a US Sailing Championship event. Hosted by the Atlanta Yacht Club and raced in the Y-Flyer, Draheim and Favela won with the low score of 22 points, good for 23-point victory.
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.
