2013 Harold Adams Team Race Classic
The 2013 SCYA Harold Adams Team Race Classic saw eleven teams from regional high schools and yacht clubs arrive at SDYC for a day of tight competition in La Playa cove. Forecasts were ominous with an outlook for intermittent rain, and little to no breeze, but as is usually the case in La Playa, sailing was better than expected with a light but serviceable SW breeze. The deft Race Committee was able to craft 50 races, completing 10 of the 11 flights in the scheduled round robin before the sun retreated for the day. Point Loma High School went undefeated to capture their seventh consecutive Harold Adams title, followed by Coronado HS in 2nd with nine wins on the day, and Cathedral Catholic HS with six wins and prevailing in the tie-breaker for 3rd place.

SDYC Sailors Selected to Train for Red Bull Youth America's Cup
SAN FRANCISCO – Before the 34th America's Cup gets underway, crews of youth sailors will have their chance in the spotlight. The Red Bull Youth America's Cup begins Sept. 1, 2013, and today ORACLE TEAM USA announced two U.S.-based teams to earn a spot in the final. Team America Racing will represent the USA, and American Youth Sailing Force will represent San Francisco. Both will now spend the next nine months training for the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup under the tutelage of ORACLE TEAM USA.
"It’s honestly the most amazing feeling ever," said Team America Racing trimmer and team manager Jacob La Dow (San Diego, Calif./St. Mary’s College of Maryland). "It's a dream come true, and at first I couldn't really believe we had done it. In the beginning of this process, we weren't as organized. But, with a lot of practice and communication we really came together as a team."
SDYC will be represented by Jake La Dow, Nevin Snow, and Jake Reynolds in the Red Bull Youth America's Cup.

Team SDYC in Japan
By Taisei Hatter
This summer I went to Japan to see my grandparents. I sailed near the city of Takamatsu off the island of Shikoku. The boats that I sailed are the Opti, Mini Hopper and the Topper. My Favorite boat out of those is the Mini Hopper. It is my favorite because it is like a Mini Laser. The Topper can be difficult because you have to pull the mainsheet from the back. In Japan it was never that windy because there are a lot of islands. That is my experience sailing in Japan.
