The 2021 Viper 640 North American Championship, hosted by Noroton Yacht Club, took place for the first time since 2019. Spanning from October 7th through the 10th, competitors saw a wide range of conditions in Long Island Sound. From light breeze and clear skies, to wind in the 20s, and cooler temperatures, there was something for everyone.

Mark Zagol with crew Drew Buttner and Tim Desmond took home the title and a spot on the #NSVictoryList with 11 points to spare over Jay Rhame, Peter Beardsley, and Rachel Beardsley who finished the event in second. Third place went to Cardwell Potts, Ted Ferrarone, Merideth Killion, and Jenifer Potts.
