Gearing up for Spring!

The start of February featured an unusual scoring phenomenom in the Sunkist Series at Balboa Yacht Club.  Kathy Reed and Walter Johnson wound up with identical scores after four months and a total of eight races scored.  Walter had won tie breakers for the first two daily tallies but Kathy won the crucial last race of the series and won the tie breaker for the last day and Series overall.  Both competitors wound up with their names being added to the Sunkist perpetual trophy for most race wins.  This was a great example of friendly yet competitive racing exemplifying the Corinthian spirit and Family Sailing - Family Fun!

Inclement weather washed out the Richmond Midwinters for our NorCal friends but SCYA Midwinters in Alamitos Bay and Oceanside brought out a gaggle of Lidos in SoCal on the weekend of February 15 -16.  Most recently, despite SoCal doing its best to break out of a drought, three brave souls took onthe elements yesterday at the SCYA Manning Regatta in Alamitos Bay and naturally sit atop the Portsmouth Class leaderboard.  Find the reports in the News section.

Three fun events are on the Calendar for the rest of March - St. Patrick's Day in Oceanside, the Harry Wood Memorial in Newport Beach and the Fleet 2 Invitational in Marina del Rey.

Super Bowl Charity Regatta is in the books.  Next...

Twenty Lidos were part of a total of thirty-nine boats that competed in the 2014 version of the Super Bowl Charity Regatta.  In typical fashion, the weather played some tricks and competitors felt the only rain drops of the year so far in SoCal.  When it the rain drops stopped it just got chilly.  Wind was a bit light with some large shifts and changes in pressure making for lots of position changes.  Be sure to check out Stu's recap.

Next in NorCal, Richmond Midwinters #3 on February 2.  In SoCal tune up for Midwinters in Newport Beach at Sunkist #4 on February 1 and then there's SCYA Midwinders in both Oceanside and Alamitos Bay on President's Weekend. 

January Fleet Captain's Meeting gets high marks

Monday, January 13, ten fleet captains were joined by Steve Potter, Butch Michel, Steve Klotz and Terry Johnson for another exchange of ideas on how to make 2014 a spectacular year in every Lido location.  After some quick housekeeping regarding Calendar dates and handling of renewals, the October meeting was reviewed to make sure everything had been followed up upon.  In the open discussion, there was productive talk about new ideas; new clinics and the recently produced Basic Racing Guide, loaner boats and obtaining title to abandoned boats, a new perpetual trophy for Fleet NCCR participation, guest speakers and more.  The next meeting was scheduled for April 14, perfect timing to take even more great ideas into the sailing season.
