Strong field for U.S. Junior Women’s Singlehandeds

Published on July 10th, 2019

The 2019 U.S. Junior Women’s Singlehanded Championship has attracted 43 sailors, competing July 11-13 across two classes in San Francisco, CA.

Registration increased significantly for the 2019 event, in part due to the addition of the Laser 4.7 class which has attracted 12 competitors. Among the 31 sailors in the Laser Radial fleet, 12 attended the 2018 event and are back again to test their skills in the big breeze on San Francisco Bay.

Laser Radial sailor, Sarah Young (Tiburon, Calif.) of San Francisco Yacht Club, returns to the Championship for the fourth year in a row. After last year’s third-place finish, Young will be looking to once again stand on the podium at this year’s event.

The U.S. Junior Women’s Championship was started in 1980 by C. Thomas Clagett Jr. (Washington, D.C.) at the Ida Lewis Yacht Club in Newport, R.I. Competitors sailed for a trophy in memory of Tom’s wife, Nancy Leiter Clagett (Washington, D.C.) who passed away in April, 1977.
