Zachary Wirth ’27 and teammate Kai McCulloch qualified to sail in the Chubb U.S. Junior Championship in Holland, MI. At 13 years old, Zack and Kai were the youngest c420 team in this national regatta for junior sailors (ages 13-18).
After qualifying to be one of two teams representing their area, the duo sailed together in the doublehanded Club 420s fleet, competing for the Bemis Trophy. Each of the 11 Areas recognized by US Sailing sent two teams to the National Championship for the singlehanded, doublehanded, and triplehanded fleets. The competing teams are considered the best sailors in the country.
