Several competitors from last year are scheduled to come back this year for another chance at the National Championship title, including last year's winning crew Jerry TULLO (Staten Island, N.Y.), who is returning this year with a different skipper, Graham TODD (Royersford, Pa.). TULLO made history last year when he and his brother TJ were the first pair of siblings to win the U.S. Youth Multihull Championship. By winning the event, the TULLOS qualified to compete at the Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship 2005 which were held earlier this summer in Busan, Korea. The two brothers came back with impressive results, taking seventh place. With TJ aging out of youth competition, Jerry decided to take another shot at qualifying for the World Championships by defending his title at the U.S. Youth Multihull Championship.

The U.S. Youth Multihull Championship is US SAILING's newest National Championship, first held in 2001. The winner of the event will receive the US SAILING Arthur J. Stevens Cup, named in recognition of the efforts of Art Stevens, former Chairman of US SAILING's Multihull Council, for developing youth multihull sailing in the United States.
