Behrens Regatta was held on May 5th at the Tiburon Yacht Club on San Francisco Bay.   Three U20s comprised one division.  Courses were designed around standard navigation marks around the north bay.  A strong snow melt assisted ebb in the middle of the course with flood currents on either side complicated the strategies.   Winds were light and building to 15 knots during the last race.  Crew work was important on the marks as every mark was contested.  Spinnaker runs were fast with top speeds around 10 knots.   Dave Woodside's Uagain was first, Mike Josselyn's Uhoo! second, and Breakaway driven by John Wolfe was third.

The Great Pumpkin Regatta was held over two days at the Richmond Yacht Club on the last weekend of October.  Mark races on the first day, a pursuit race on the Sunday.  Three U20s raced, with Team Udecide with Phil Kangesberg and Denise Hammond coming in first over three races held in sunny skies and gentle breezes.  On Sunday, the U20s all went counterclockwise around Angel Island and then Alcatraz.  Typical Bay conditions with strong currents, breeze in the teens, and fog shrouding the islands.  Over 120 boats raced with Udecide coming in 18th and Uhoo! coming in 22nd.   Another Atrium design, the 40 foot California Condor came in first.
