U.S. Youth Sailing Championship 2005
Westport, Connecticut, USA

In just a little over a week, 160 of the USA's top youth sailors will arrive in Westport, Connecticut, to compete in the U.S. Youth Sailing Championship 2005 organized by US SAILING and hosted by Cedar Point Yacht Club.
From 24-30 June, these young sailors, who are all under the age of 20, will race on Long Island Sound in Lasers, Laser Radials, and Club 420s to compete for the coveted National Champion title.

The list of competitors of the U.S. Youth Championship reads like a 'Who's Who' in American youth sailing and includes several current and past US Youth World Team members, Orange Bowl champions, a US Sailing Team member, and many more. For the members of the 2005 US Youth World Team the Championship will be the ideal warm up for the Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship which begins in Busan, Korea on 14 July.

The competitors were selected based on sailing resumes from a list of more than 260 applicants. Before top level racing begins on Monday 27 June, the Championship features three days of advanced racing clinics, led by US SAILING's Youth Development Coach Mike KALIN, who will be joined by a team of at least eight other well known sailors and US Sailing Team athletes.
