Great session with Jim Antrim who was the naval architect working with Jeff Canepa on the U20 and designer of the U24, Antrim 27 and many other very cool boats.  Thanks again to Jim for the time he spent with the class.

Thanks Mike! No lack of old wetsuits laying around here.
Hello U20 Owners and Happy New Year!
The board is looking forward to a great 2022 with lots of regattas and new value for your class membership.

New this year we have began to secure those hard to find parts.  Thanks to Michael Eisenburg the class now has a supply of rudder pins, hatch board lock hasps and outboard bolts.  These custom parts are for sale in the classifieds and are ready to ship exclusively for class members.

We are also working with a builder to provide new rudders and spinnaker pole covers as these two parts are seeing their age and needing replacement.

Our fantastic class treasurer (Emily) has mailed out renewals but you can also pay your dues on the website. 

         Active Members (Boat owners) and Associate Members (Co-Owners, crew or other Class supporters)  both pay $55.00/year.
         Lifetime Members,  please complete the Owner information on the form and send it to Emily.
Please note that you have 2 options for payment:
1.       Print the Membership Form and mail the completed form to the address at the top along with a check made payable to U20 Class Association.
2.       Make payment with PayPal link here:  In this case, please complete your personal information on the form and email it back to Emily.
2022 U20 Class Stickers will be mailed to your address, so please submit current information.
If you have sold your boat, it would be great to know who the new owner is so we can add them to our Class listing.
Please contact Emily our class secretary at treasurer at for any questions.

I used neoprene.  Old wetsuit material.  Thinking it was 6mil.  Made a template (4 bolts) transferred to the neoprene and cut it out.  Enough stretch to do one piece and stretch it over the top plate.

3 years and working fine.

Need to replace the keel gasket. Any ideas on where to get one or what works best in place of the original?

Looks like there are three U20's now at Huntington.  Anyone thinking of doing the High Sierra in 2022?
None that I can think of.  It's not a long drive to SDYC to go the party or awards ceremony.  Maybe 20 minutes. 

Coronado is a bit more expensive than some of the other locations. That may be the only downside. 
The Season Championship is to recognize those skippers and crew that consistently participate and do well in races held in Northern California or other races recognized for promoting and supporting the Ultimate 20 class in the region.   The Matt Boroughf Trophy for the Season Championship will reward those skippers who score the best in races where two or more qualified U20s race using a High Score Averaged Scoring System.   This system places more emphasis on those races with a higher number of participants; however, any race with two or more qualified boats will be scored.

To qualify for the season championship trophy, an owner must sail in at least eight events either from the list above or as added during the season.  If an event is canceled after boats are registered, the number of events required for qualification will be reduced.  For boats that sail in the PCC or the Nationals, it will be counted as two events towards the eight events to qualify for the trophy.

Full Rules are attached.  What this space for stories about the Northern California fleet.
