NENSA U16 Championships

The NENSA U16 Championships began modestly in 1992 has grown into one of the highlights of the season for junior athletes. New York and each New England state can qualify their fastest 24 – U16 (ages 14-15) boys and girls. Four races take place over 2 1/2 days. Seeded wave starts ensure match racing at its finest. This event will typically see invited entries from other regions within the US and Canada.
