Summer 2023: US Open Sailing Series

Published on April 26th, 2023

Registration is open for the 2023 US Open Sailing Series summer events. The three events span the coast of California and include the Olympic and Youth Worlds classes.

Established in 2019, and building off the historically important Olympic Class Regattas (OCRs), the US Open Sailing Series provides a domestic regatta schedule and training platform for athletes racing in Olympic and Youth Worlds classes.

The California events are:

San Diego (San Diego Yacht Club)
June 16-18, 2023
Classes: ILCA 4, ILCA 6, ILCA 7, i420, Nacra 15, 470, 29er

July 14-16, 2023
Classes: 470, 49er, 49erFX, Formula Kite, ILCA 7, ILCA 6, ILCA 4, IQFOIL, Nacra 17, 29er, 420, IQFOIL Youth, Nacra 15, Finn, Open Kitefoil.
The Long Beach event is the ILCA North American Championship

Classes: iQFOiL, Formula Kite, Wingfoil, ILCA 4, ILCA 6, ILCA 7, 29er, 49er, 49erFX, 470, i420

Each regatta will serve as a qualifier for the ILCA 6 Women’s and ILCA 7 Men’s Olympic Trials, held in Miami, January of 2024. Top eight ILCA 7 men and top eight ILCA 6 women who have not previously qualified will earn a spot at the 2024 Olympic trials.

“The US Open domestic sailing series is a critical component of our long-term Olympic strategy,” said Sarah Lihan, Co-Head of the US Sailing Team. “Building the domestic base as we move into the LA 2028 home games is especially exciting, and the stronger we are as a domestic squad, the better we all perform.”
