The second stop of the West Marine US Open Sailing Series opens this weekend, January 21-23, at US Sailing Center Miami. Current and former Olympic class boats will be on display, including 49er, 49erFX, Open 470, Nacra 17, iQFoil, Open Windfoil and Finn. 58 sailors from six countries will be represented across the seven classes.

Miami is the longest standing Olympic-class regatta in the country and an important stop on the Olympic-class circuit. Over the years, event organizers have collaborated with US Sailing to host international regattas such as Miami Olympic Class Regatta (OCR) and World Cup Series Miami.

This year, sailors from the United States competing in Olympic classes will be eligible for prize money over the three Florida and three California events; a first in US Sailing history. Athletes are awarded for $1000 for first place, $500 for second and $250 for third.

The US Open Sailing Series is a set of six Olympic class regattas at popular sailing venues across Florida and California. The Series serves as a domestic training platform and provides solid annual racing opportunities for prospective Olympic-bound athletes.

Each regatta will follow local guidance and ordinances regarding Covid protocols. Protocols are to be followed by competitors, race officials and event attendees. The health and safety of athletes, race officials and volunteers is US Sailing's number one priority.
