US SAILING's U.S. Women's Sailing Championship will be held next week in Kaneohe, HI. Judging by the list of experienced competitors from across the country, this year's event promises some tight racing.
Last year's winner, Joni PALMER (Annapolis, MD) is returning to defend her title against a number of previous winners and competitors including 2002 winner, Vicki SODERO (San Francisco, CA) and Meg DEMPSEY (Stamford, CT). Kaneohe Bay Yacht Club is the host of the event. Rolex Watch U.S.A. is a proud sponsor of the U.S. Women's Sailing Championship.
The winning team of the Championship will be awarded the Mrs. Charles Francis Adams Trophy, which is believed to be "the first women's championship ever held in the world" and surely the first in North America.
