US Open Sailing Series moves to Miami
Published on January 20th, 2022
The six-event 2022 US Open Sailing Series arrives at its second stop on January 21-23 in Miami, FL. Fifty-nine entries representing six countries will compete in the 49er, 49erFX, Open 470, Nacra 17, iQFoil, Open Windfoil, and Finn.
Miami is the longest standing Olympic-class regatta in the USA and an important stop on the Olympic-class circuit. Over the years, event organizers have collaborated with US Sailing to host international regattas such as Miami Olympic Class Regatta (OCR) and World Cup Series Miami.
This year, sailors from the United States competing in Olympic classes will be eligible for prize money over the three Florida and three California events; a first in US Sailing history. Athletes are awarded for $1000 for first place, $500 for second and $250 for third.
