On July 17, Kelly Holthus led a parade of small white sails across the channel for the 46th installation of SDYC’s iconic Dutch Shoe Marathon. Nearly 150 sabots competed in the seven-mile race from Point Loma to Coronado. The Dutch Shoe Marathon is open to sabot sailors of all ages, but for many Junior Sailing participants, it’s the first time that they sail across the channel or outside of the La Playa practice area.
San Diego Yacht Club will be broadcasting this year's Dutch Shoe live online with the help of Hildreth Media Group, and on-air host Dan Bell. We plan on including sailor interviews, on-water video, and more! Families of sailors will be able to experience this classic San Diego summertime event in a whole new way. www.sdyc.org/dutchshoe/live
On Friday July 17, 2015, SDYC will host the 46th annual Dutch Shoe Marathon. The tradition of starting at San Diego Yacht Club and racing all the way to Coronado Yacht Club has been a long standing summer event that many sailors and families look forward to every year. Over 150 sailors ages 7 - 77 will compete in this event.
