On Thursday, June 9, US Sailing announced the conclusion of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 Athlete Trials in the Finn class. As a result, the leading U.S. athlete, Luke Muller, has earned selection to the 2020 U.S. Olympic Sailing Team and is nominated to Team USA. Muller earned selection thanks to his performances at the 2019 Finn World Championship and 2020 Hempel World Cup Series Miami, where he placed 17th and 3rd, respectively.
On Thursday, July 9, US Sailing’s Olympic Sailing Committee voted that participation at the 2020 Finn and 470 World Championships is not in the best interest of U.S. athletes. Upon review of current State Department and Travel Advisories and at the recommendation of US Sailing’s Selection Committee, the OSC determined that these regattas will not be used as the third 2020 U.S. Olympic Sailing Team selection event for the Women’s 470 or Finn classes.
As the Chairman of the US Sailing Diversity and Inclusion Committee and as a recent addition to the Board of Directors at Hudson River Community Sailing (HRCS), Sergeant Debora Abrams-Wright has come a long way in a relatively short time.

LIVE at 5pm est today! 💦Cold water is a common problem for boaters, but many boaters don't understand all the risks. Hypothermia is a well-known issue, but lesser known problems such as cold shock and cold incapacitation can create life threatening hazards for boaters who fall overboard or otherwise enter the water. The presentation will discuss risk factors and prevention techniques for each of these problems.
