Championship of Champions

 


Inaugurated in 1976, US Sailing selects up to nineteen competitors from nominees by their class associations who are current national or North American champions of their respective classes. Eligible are sailors who normally sail in the U.S., are members of US Sailing and are members of a club, class or association affiliated with US Sailing.

The championship is held in a different class each year and a guest helm is invited.  Invited helms have included the winner of the Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year, Olympians, and other sailing luminaries.

Classes in which the event has been held run the gamut from conventional to cutting edge and have included Y-Flyers, Snipes, Hobie Cats, J-24’s, Sunfish and Etchells, to name just a few.

The Championship is named in honor of Jack Brown who was noted for his service as a judge, regatta organizer and member of US Sailing Committees.
