2017 ETCHELLS NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP
Registration Is Open!The Notice of Race is posted and Registration is now open. We look forward to having an incredible collection of talented Etchells sailors in San Diego for the 2017 NA Championship.
Recapping the 2017 Etchells Nationals hosted by New York Yacht Club: Everybody loves a new race boat. But until it proves itself on the racecourse, there's always a tiny kernel of worry it won't live up to expectations, or even equal the performance of the boat being replaced. We all know what they say about a bird in the hand. Steve Benjamin and his team can cross that concern off their work list after sailing the freshly-splashed Stella Blue (aka USA 1427) to the 2017 Etchells U.S. National Championship, which was held as part of the inaugural New York Yacht Club One-Design Regatta, in Newport, R.I. Melges 20 and J/70 fleets also competed in the event.
San Diego Yacht Club and the Etchells Fleet 13 welcome Etchells sailors from North America to San Diego this summer for the 2017 Etchells North American Championship. San Diego has an active and highly competitive Etchells fleet, sailing every month in the same venue where the NA Championship will be held. We invite Etchells sailors to come sail with some of the best in the Class including some recent World Champions.
