The Turtle Regatta has always been full of surprises. This year the regatta held over May 4th and 5th weekend at Willamette Sailing Club in Portland proved not be an exception. For one thing it was sunny, I mean not-a-cloud-in-the-sky-sunny and secondly it was windy. These two things rarely happen in Portland at the same time. It was blowing a steady 15 knots gusting up to 29 knots and the wind was coming from the East, which meant that the gusts were shifty and squirrely.
MOTHER'S DAY REGATTA
May 11, 2013
It was a mother of a boat race. The Mother's Day Regatta drew some of the best sailors in California to Oceanside Harbor for the 3rd day of competition, for the title of Lido 14, District 1 Champion. The legendary Lido 14 Family Day Sailor was featured...the Series of 5 Race Days began in February with the SCYA MidWinters at Alamitos Bay, continued on March 30 with Fleet 2 Invitational in Marina Del Rey, and Oceanside Harbor's Fleet 21 witnessed a crush of plastic and dacron at 1200 last Saturday, May 11.
Here's your chance to help support a new Youth sailing program in Chula Vista, CA. Reality Sailing invites all Lido 14 Class Members and friends to enjoy their Open House Saturday, May 25 at the Otay Lake launch ramp. View the Invitation by Clicking Here.

The crack of the starting gun at noon, Sunday, reverberated through the past 60+ years of Oceanside history. The occasion was the annual presentation of the Byron Jessup Perpetual Trophy, which honors the top skipper and crew, in the most competitive sailboat racing class in the Oceanside sailing community
Fleet 62 Spring 1,2,3 recap
by Joe Davis via Yahoo Groups
Don't know all the details, but this is what I remember:
Went to the local pond today for the Spring 1,2,3 Regatta. Didn't do to bad, we didn't capsize, break anything and finished all 3 races. Janet did get knocked in the head once when the mast gybed unexpectedly.
