Sunday's final showdown on San Francisco Bay featured another incredible display of speed and modern sailing technology with highly skilled and determined athletes.

The regatta once again included two race circles featuring the iQFoil and Formula Kite fleets organized by the St. Francis Yacht Club and the ILCA and I420 events were being run by the San Francisco Yacht Club. The ILCA fleets launched from the Treasure Island Sailing Center.

The ILCA 6 and 4 fleets ran two separate days of racing with no results carrying over from Saturday to Sunday's scores. The fleets ran medal races on both days. The competitor list featured mostly Olympic Development Program (ODP) athletes.

The Intenational 420 class also competed in a two-day regatta on Saturday and Sunday. Click here to final standings.

Sailors raced in 18-20 knots and air temperatures in the low 60s.

iQFoil 9

In another leaderboard shake-up on Sunday, Adrien Gaillard (Cozumel, Mexico) captured the iQFoil 9 event after a strong performance on Sunday. He edged Cristobal Hagerman Haro (Bahia de Banderas, Mexico) by just one point. They had a point-share of the lead after Saturday's racing.

There was a lot at stake for many of the competing sailors this week. US Open Sailing San Francisco was a Junior Pan Am Games selection event for both iQFoil events. Alexander Temko (Palm Harbor, Fla.) and Noah Lyons (Clearwater, Fla.) were in a tie for third place entering Sunday's racing. Temko won the last race of the regatta to take third over Lyons who was second. Temko qualified as the top American athlete in the competition.

"Today, we had some super amazing racing out here on San Francisco Bay," said Temko. "We had some challenging conditions with the current and the wind. I was fortunate enough to qualify for the Junior Pan American Games by one point. Noah Lyons gave me a run for my money, but at the end it came down to the last race. I'm super happy to represent my country at Junior Pan American Games."

Six countries were represented in the Men's iQFoil event, including the United States, Mexico, Canada, Dominican Republic, Colombia, and South Africa.

iQFoil 8

JP Lattanzi (Honolulu, Hawaii) was the fleet leader from start to finish over three days and 13 races. He placed 1-3-1 over three more races on Sunday to win the championship. He won 11 of 13 races this week and still only won by six points over Bryn Muller (Largo, Fla.), the top female in the fleet.

Muller qualified for the Junior Pan Am Games with her performance this week. She won three races and placed second eight times. Danicka Sailer (Honolulu, Hawaii) finished a strong weekend in third place.

Open Formula Kite

The Open Formula Kite completed three more races on Sunday and Kai Calder (Alameda, Calif.) claimed first place honors after taking over possession of first place on Saturday. Calder was even on points with Johnny Heineken (Larkspur, Calif.) and Markus Edegran (Rio Vista, Calif.) after Friday's racing. Calder won after posting a 2-(4)-1 scoring line and defeating Edegran by five points, despite wins from Edegran in Race 11 and 12. Johnny Heineken (Larkspur, Calif.) took home third place.

"It was a great three days of plenty of current and breeze out there," said Calder. "Some tough sailing conditions and really tough battles with the top fleet. I'm really stoked about this week's results and I think winning the event is pretty sweet. This is the first event I have won so I'm really happy to be doing it here with my friends."

US Open Sailing San Francisco was also used in the ranking of sailors for the upcoming 2021 Formula Kite World Championships.

International 420

The I420 fleet tallied three races on Saturday to start the regatta and two races on Sunday. Jack Murphy (Hillsborough, Calif.) and Sawyer Bastian (San Jose, Calif.) took an early lead after winning the first two races of the event on Saturday.

They were even on points with the team of Sophia Devling (Newport Beach, Calif.) and Oakley Cunningham (Pacific Beach, Calif.) at the close of the regatta. Devling and Cunningham placed first and second today.
