New mix of Olympic 470 pairs

Published on March 29th, 2023

When the Olympic 470 class was shifted to coed for the next Olympics, there was a shuffling of the 470 sailor deck. New to the mix is Trevor Bornarth and Louisa Nordstrom for the USA, now battling for a berth. Story by Lucas Masiello for Sailing World.

Training alone in their International 470 off the south shore of Long Island, New York, in the summer of 2021, Louisa Nordstrom and Trevor Bornarth were a world away from the spectacle of the Tokyo Games. There, Olympians Stu McNay and Dave Hughes rolled their sails together for the last time, marking the end of the individual men’s and women’s Olympic 470 disciplines and the beginning of the new Mixed Olympic 470 era.

For Nordstrom and Bornarth, and many young sailors looking to reach the pinnacle of dinghy sailing, this new coed medal provides a unique opportunity to compete in the Paris and Los Angeles Games. – Full report
