The final day of the U.S. Team Racing Championship ended up being a half day of sailing due to a complete wind shutdown. However, the fleet completed enough races to count Gold Round Robin 3 and crown Ladies and Gentlemen as the back-to-back Team Racing Champions.
The 2014 Bishop Rock Yacht Race, hosted by San Diego Yacht Club, was billed as the "Dare to Take the Challenge" race. The race totals approximately 200 nautical miles, a course full of big wind and large waves.
The US Youth Championship regatta is hosted every year in August. To be able to compete in this event you must fill out an application with all of your top results. My crew, Charlie Miller, and I [Andy Reiter] were lucky enough to be accepted into the US Youth Championships in the Club 420 class.
Over the past summer I had the privileged opportunity of attending Laser Nationals in San Francisco Bay from July 31st to August 3rd. I greatly appreciate the support of the San Diego Yacht Club in preparation and support for this major event.
Scott Sinks and Rebecca McElvain saved their best effort for the final day at the US Sailing Youth Champs in Grosse Pointe Shores, MI. The SDYC tandem proved to be the most consistent team of the week to win the Club 420 fleet after four more races Thursday.
