U.S. Youth Multihull Championship 2005
Panama City, Florida, USA

It was a tight squeeze for the race organizers and competitors of the U.S. Youth Multihull Championship this weekend in Panama City, Florida. With Hurricane Katrina approaching, organizers and host club St. Andrew Bay Yacht Club decided to fit in as many races as possible on Friday and Saturday, cancelling races on Sunday, what otherwise would have been the final day. Six wins on the opening day meant Michael SIAU and Sam INGHAM were on top from the start and never relinquished their lead.
With SIAU And INGHAM's dominant performance on Friday, Saturday's racing turned into a battle for the silver and bronze medals.

After a breakfast supplied by host club, St. Andrews Bay, all seventeen Hobie 16s left the beach and headed out to the race course for the start of what would be the final day races.

SIAU And INGHAM had another outstanding day in this, their first U.S. Youth Multihull Championship and are this year's recipients of the Arthur J. Stevens Trophy. SIAU will be too old to compete in the 2006 Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF Youth World Championship in Weymouth, Great Britain and therefore Evan MILLER and Kyler HAST, who took second overall, will represent the USA. SIAU and INGHAM will instead represent the USA in October at the Catagolfe regatta in France.
