After four days packed with racing on Little Egg Harbor, the 2019 U.S. Youth Sailing Championship winners have been decided.

Several sailors set the tone early to lead their fleets from the first race. Brothers, Justin and Mitchell Callahan (Miami, Fla.) dominated the i420 fleet all week. The pair finished first in eight of eleven races, and only finished one race outside the top three. In the 29er fleet, Hayden Earl (Boston, Mass.) and Tommy Styron (Hamden, Conn.) likewise led the pack from race one.

Nacra 15 team Ben Rosenberg (East Greenwich, R.I.) and Sidney Charbonnet (Metairie, La.) led the Nacra 15 fleet from day one. In varying conditions, keeping it simple was key for this team. "I really think keeping our heads out of the boat was big this week. We also had really good communication and kept it simple, just focusing on what we practiced," said Charbonnet.

Her skipper, Rosenberg, also noted that having US Sailing Team athlete, Sarah Newberry, as a coach gave them an interesting perspective, "It was really cool to hear about her experience on the higher end, Olympic-level and be able to connect that to the youth stage of the sport." Newberry is currently pursuing an Olympic campaign for 2020 in the Nacra 17. As one of the six US Sailing Fleet Coaches this week, she provided feedback for all of the sailors in the Nacra 15s.

While some sailors dominated early, the leaderboards in the two Laser fleets came down to the final races. In the full rig fleet, Chase Carraway (Wrightsville Beach, N.C.), stayed close behind until winning the final six races, putting himself six points ahead of the next closest competitor.

Chapman Petersen (Winnetka, Ill.) kept the spectators on their toes this morning by receiving a U-flag penalty in the first race of today. Heading into the final race, Petersen only had a one-point lead on the competition. He was able to finish first in the final race, securing his victory.

In addition to their gold medals, today's winners will be taking home a new pair of Sperry Bionic shoes. Sportsmanship award winners will be taking home a pair of sunglasses provided by Hobie Polarized. As a national sponsor of US Sailing, Sperry and Hobie Polarized provide support to all 2019 U.S. Sailing Championships.
