Sarah and Elizabeth Newberry, of Miami, Fla., won the U.S. Youth Multihull Championship, sailed in Hobie 16s and hosted by Miami YC last July. The sisters, 18 and 12, respectively, scored 12 points in nine races, and became the first female team to win the event. Because Sarah will age out of the 2007 event, runners-up Eric Raybon and Jason Bilow will defend the title at next year's
Youth Multihull Regatta in Kingston, Ontario, which is also the qualifier for the 2007 ISAF Youth Worlds. www.ussailing.org
