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.
