2019 505 North Americans

SoCal competitors place 1st, 2nd and 4th.

Kingston, Canada / August 23 – 26, 2019

Final Results


By Russ Clark

The 2019 North American 505 Championships are complete. 

Congratulations to Mike Martin and Adam Lowry who have won the event after 10 races from Howard Hamlin and Russ Clark in second and Mike Holt and Carl Smit in third.

After a postponement ashore today’s racing was abandoned as the sun beat down and the breeze faltered. The prize giving was held on the waterfront lead by event organiser Jeff Boyd with recognition given to the small army of volunteers who made this event a true success.

The 40 boat fleet was challenged by mixed conditions and tight racing on the fresh water of Lake Ontario. With 4 of the current top 5 boats in the world competing, the battle for the podium places was always destined to be tough, however the whole fleet enjoyed tight racing with plenty of opportunity for place swapping and overtaking.

2016 505 Worlds Update

30 July – 5 August 2016        Weymouth, UK

ABYC’s Riley Gibbs and Reeve Dunne Win the 505 North Americans!

From the Event Website:  The final day of racing again saw mostly clear skies, but a little more finicky wind. We were able to get in one long race today with winds of 6-8 knots easing in the last half of the race. With this race, the total count for the regatta was 10 races which gave the competitors another throw out. Interestingly, the additional throw out did not change the positions of the top 5 sailors from yesterday.

Congratulations to Riley Gibbs and Reeve Dunne for a well sailed regatta to capture first place and become the 2016 North American Champions.

ABYC/NHYC’s Howie Hamlin and Jeff Nelson placed second.
