470 Class North American Championships had fifty-three 470s hailing from fifteen different countries compete on January 14-16, 2011 in Miami FL.
US Sailing Team Alpha Graphics members Stu McNay and Graham Biehl (Beijing 2008) and USSTAG's Erin Maxwell sailing with Isabelle Kinsolving-Farrar (Athens 2004) led for the first two days of the event, but were caught out in the light air conditions of day three to be passed by Mathew Belcher/Malcolm Paige AUS (1st Overall Men) and Camille Lecointre/Mathilde Geron FRA (1st Overall Women). Congratulations to McNay/Biehl (2nd Men) and Maxwell/Kinsolving-Farrar (3rd Women), the top NA competitors and new 470 Class North American Champions. Thank you to Coconut Grove Sailing Club for hosting the well run event.
