Following months of collaboration and teamwork, US Sailing and the Bristol Yacht Club (R.I.) decided not to hold the 2020 U.S. Team Racing Championship this year due to ongoing circumstances caused by the COVID19 pandemic.

This championship was originally planned for September 11-13, 2020. The Bristol Yacht Club has graciously agreed to host the 2021 U.S. Team Racing Championship for the George R. Hinman Trophy next summer or fall. Specific dates for this event will be confirmed at a later time.

In the spring, Qualifiers for the championship were canceled and the event was transitioned to an invitation by resume event.

"We appreciate the energy and effort Bristol Yacht Club put into the 2020 edition of the U.S. Team Racing Championship," said Clinton Hayes, U.S. Team Racing Committee Chair. "Their planning for the safety of sailors, umpires and volunteers was second to none. Though the 2020 edition of the championship for the Hinman will not happen, we look forward to returning to Bristol in 2021 for an event that will surpass the expectations of everyone involved."

This historic championship features teams steeped in team racing experience and deep in college sailing talent of today and past years, including current and former college sailors, coaches, and alumni from major programs. This event often serves as a qualifier for World Sailing's Team Racing World Championship.

The championship is raced in three-boat/six-person teams. Teams were planning to sail the newly redesigned Zim 420E sailboats provided by Zim Sailing.

The 2020 U.S. Team Racing Championship is sponsored by Hobie Polarized.
