As defined in our Constitution and Bylaws, our Class Association exists "to promote the Ultimate 20 as a one-design class under uniform rules governed by this Association and designed to fulfill the diverse needs of the recreational sailor, such as one-design racing, day sailing, cruising, and handicap racing." Any request to change the class rules must be supplied on the Change Request Form prior to the Annual Class Meeting.
The Class Association is divided into five Districts within the US. Locally, we organize into fleets, which consist of U20s that regularly race together.
