Club 420 Summer with Jack Egan & Jack Plavan

By Jack Egan | August 28, 2018

To begin the month of August Jack Plavan and I (Jack Egan), boarded a JetBlue flight out to Boston, where we would then drive from to arrive at New Bedford, on the cape of Massachusetts where the C420 North American Championship would be held in the coming days. We were very excited to experience Buzzards Bay, which is notorious for its great wind. At the venue, we were greeted by an old military fort dating back to the Civil War, and a brand new Zim charter boat. The next four days had a range of conditions, with 20+ knots on the first day and then a little less wind each coming day getting to as low as 6 knots on the last day with a day of no racing in between for rain and wind. It was a new experience for Jack and I to sail in a 180 boat fleet with a middle start boat and to have that windy of conditions but still get 30°+ wind shifts and 10 knot wind differences on the course. By the end of our regatta, we found ourselves in sixth place. There was not much time to rest as we flew out the next morning to Detroit to head to the CHUBB Junior Championship (Bemis).

Fun and Adventure at the 2018 Ida Lewis

By Alice Schmid & Samantha Gardner | August 22, 2018

Ida Lewis was one of our first regattas outside of California without parents, so we weren’t sure what to expect. I traveled along side SDYC coach Beka Schiff and my teammate Sammie Gardner. Sammie and I have just recently entered the world of double handed sailing, experimenting in C420s, 29ers CFJs and most recently I420s. We took off Tuesday July 24, very early in the morning and after 5 hours in the air we arrived in Cleveland, Ohio.

Practice Makes Perfect for Team SDYC

By Peter Busch | August 21, 2018

The 2018 Junior Sabot Nationals at Long Beach Yacht Club wrapped up a great season for SDYC. The week was very tricky with some extreme currents and fog during the start of the second and third days causing some crazy wind shifts. First, second, and fifth in gold fleet, Team SDYC put in a ton of effort this year leading up to the event. Practice every day during the summer and a clinic with other clubs from our area ensured we were prepared.

Taisei Hatter Laser Racing at Nationals and Youth Champs

By Taisei Hatter | July 26, 2018

This year the Youth Champs Regatta was located in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina.  It was four days with many kinds of boats including the Laser Full Rig, Laser Radial, i420, 29ner, Nacra, and windsurfers.  I was sailing Laser Radials, but it was great seeing friends from all of the other fleets as well as mine.  It made it difficult though when we started because of how the Radials needed to wait for the i420s and the Full Rigs to start before us.

Scott Sinks Leads Team SDYC at Highly Competitive Governor’s Cup

By Scott Sinks | July 26, 2018

Last week (July 16 thru 21), my crew comprised of Johannes McElvain, Wade Waddell, and I traveled to Balboa Yacht Club to race in the 52nd Annual Governors Cup regatta. The regatta attracted twelve of the top youth match racers from around the world to compete for the prestigious Governor's Cup trophy. This year's event was heralded by many of the organizers as "the toughest" Governors Cup in history, as well as the top youth match race regatta in the world. The invitational regatta featured multiple top 50 ranked sailors, as well as the current #1 ranked match racer in the world. With such a competitive fleet, my team and I were excited to match up against the world’s best. The regatta was comprised of a practice day and opening ceremony followed by five long days of racing sailed off of the Newport pier. It was our teams first match race regatta sailed together, and my third Governors Cup as a competitor.

Big Breeze at Hong Kong 29er Worlds for Jack Joslin

By Jack Joslin | February 02, 2018

I recently travelled to Hong Kong for the 2018 29er World Championships. I had the privilege of being selected for the US Sailing Travel Team for the event. The regatta proved to be very action-packed at times and not so much at others. For the six day event, we had two days of racing when the Race Committee did not allow sailing due to too much breeze, with gusts into the forties as recorded by the race committee on those days. The other four days included one very light and three very windy days. Two of the very windy days were gusting into the thirties while the other only included only one race because it got so windy while we were out on the water that they had to send us in. The race committee recorded a gust of fifty knots on that day. It was complete carnage!  I did not achieve the result I was hoping for at this event, however, the extreme conditions and world class competition allowed me to gain so much experience and knowledge. The experience of travelling to another country and competing against the world’s best was amazing and is something I will never forget. I’d like to thank the SDYC Competition Fund for the continued support in my quest for excellence.
