The Columbia River is the site of the 2008 International 505 Class Yacht Racing Associations North American Championships. On July 16th thru the 20th in Cascade Locks, Oregon dozens of International 505 sailors from the United States and Canada, along with visiting European sailors will take on the famous winds of 'The Gorge'.

Managed by the Columbia Gorge Racing Association and hosted by the Pacific Northwest Fleet of the International 505 class, the regatta is sponsored by Far East Boats, Fisheries Supply, Glaser Sails, Kam Gear, North Sails, West Marine, and Zhik Sailing Gear. The 505 North American Championships are included on the schedule of events for the 2008 Gorge Games.

About the International 505
The International 505, a high-performance double-handed racing dinghy is actively sailed in over 20 countries and on 5 continents. The 16’6', 280 pound trapeze dinghy carries a main and jib sail area of 178 square feet and a spinnaker of 200 square feet.

The 'semi-developmental' philosophy of the class has allowed for technological advances well beyond John Westells original design in 1954 . The no secrets attitude within the class keeps the relative speed of all boats close. A twenty-year-old boat can still win a championship.
