US SAILING Youth Multihull Championship
Sea Cliff, New York

For the first time in the history of US SAILING's U.S. Youth Multihull Championship, a pair of siblings won the event hosted by Sea Cliff Yacht Club in New York.
TJ and Jerry TULLO, from Staten Island, NY, and representing Toms River Yacht Club in NJ, were presented with the US SAILING Arthur J. Stevens Trophy during the closing ceremonies on Sunday. By winning the event, the brothers have qualified to represent the USA at the 2005 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship to be held in Pusan, South Korea. The event was sailed in brand-new Hobie 16s supplied by the Hobie Cat Company.

The Tullo brothers took the lead on the first day of racing and never gave up their lead. For skipper TJ, who is two-and-a-half years older than his brother Jerry, this wasn't his first appearance at the U.S. Youth Multihull Championship. He competed in the 2001 event and finished second. Unable to compete in the 2002 and 2003 events, TJ came back this year and was prepared to win. He bought a multihull several months ago and used it for practice throughout the spring. At the Championship, the Tullo's were the team to beat, they had four bullets in a total of eight races and finished with a total of 14 points. In second place, with a total of 21 points, were Jack FIELD and Tyler BURD representing Ram Island Yacht Club in West Mystic, CT.

A sportsmanship award was presented to Tim WALLACE of Eastpoint, FL, for his positive sportsmanship behaviour. A few minutes before going out on the water for the second day of racing, Wallace received a call from home and got the news that his grandmother had passed away. Wallace took a few minutes to compose himself and then continued with what he had been doing throughout the Championship: helping event organizers by setting up the boats and fine-tuning them, and being exceptionally gracious to anyone at the event, including his fellow competitors. Wallace finished fourth in the event before rushing home to be with his family.
