We are excited to announce that North Sails Gulf Coast will partner with the 2010 505 North American Championship as an event partner. Our friends in St. Petersburg have graciously donated a dacron jib that will be awarded to the top under 25 team. This is a fantastic contribution to our event; we hope some young teams will look to capture this prize and fill out their sail inventory.

Additionally, LaserPerformance Sail+Sport Chicago will be on-site with gear and parts available for purchase. Formerly Hedlund Marine, LaserPerformance Sail+Sport Chicago has been serving Chicago's small boat sailors for over 50 years. We are excited to have their chandlery services available in the dinghy park.

In order to illustrate the excitement of 505 sailing, we will be working with sailgroove.org to capture video of the racing. Sailgroove will also be around to conduct competitor interviews during the event; hopefully everyone who wants to can get their mug immortalized on the internet.
