Perfect Day for the 2017 Dutch Shoe Marathon

SAN DIEGO (July 21, 2017) Over 150 junior and senior sailors took San Diego Bay on July 21, 2017 for the 48th Annual Dutch Shoe Marathon. A summer time favorite, these competitors completed the annual dinghy distance race from San Diego Yacht Club (SDYC) to Coronado Yacht Club all in a sabot sailboat.

The sky was perfectly sunny and temperatures were in the high 70s with lighter winds mostly around 6 knots when the fleets began, starting in La Playa at noon. From there, they traveled down San Diego Bay, traveling over 7 miles on the race course, ultimately finishing in Glorietta Bay. Most participants were between the ages of 8 and 15 with many adult sailors also participating in the senior division.

Marleigh Henehan from Mission Bay Yacht Club was leading most of the race in her yellow striped sabot. At 14 years old, this was only Marleigh’s second Dutch Shoe Marathon. “I raced it two years ago and I capsized during that race. Since then, I’ve moved up two fleets. The first time I did it I was in C1 and now I’m in C3. I’ve been going to sailing camp in Mission Bay every afternoon to practice.”

Marleigh triumphantly crossed the finish line first, sailing into the horns and cheers of the spectator boats. After crossing she pumped her first in the air and exclaimed, “Girls Rule!”

Peter and Jack Joslin Represent SDYC at Us Sailing Youth Championships

By Jack Joslin | July 20, 2017

Recently, my brother Peter and I competed at the US Youth Championships in Corpus Christi, Texas.  We had earned an automatic acceptance, to this application only event, having finished 2nd in the 29er at the Open Orange Bowl Regatta last December.

John Pearce, US Sailing’s Youth Director was quoted “Youth Champs is the place to be. We have the top sailors in the country here, as well as US Sailing provided coaches who provide excellent instruction, tips and mentorship for these young sailors. This is a great place for sailors to up their skill level, challenge themselves and be exposed to a high level environment...”  

Peter and I were pleased to be the only SDYC representatives at this prestigious event, if we do not count all-star PRO Jeff Johnson. It was great to have him running things and he did an amazing job in difficult conditions, always setting a fair race track.

Jack Reiter Competes at the US Youth Match Race Nationals for the Rose Cup

By Jack Reiter | July 20, 2017

The Fort Worth Boat Club was the lucky host for this year's US Youth Match Race Nationals for the Rose Cup. One would think that in early June, it wouldn't be a hot trip to Texas.  In reality, for four days straight, it had reached 103 degrees. This proved to be another challenge for everyone throughout the weekend.

On June 14th, right after Diego Escobar and I got out of school, we met up with the rest of our team, Amanda and John Majernik, and walked throughout San Diego International to catch our 3 o'clock flight. We were lucky enough to be joined by fellow SDYC Team Member Jack Egan on our flight as he too had to finish off his school year. The five of us comfortably traveled to Dallas and then boarded a shuttle that would take us all the way to Fort Worth.

Sabot Summer Series #2 Video

By | June 29, 2017

Here's our first drone footage of the summer, courtesy of coach Cal Pedroli! No editing or audio yet, but we'll use this footage to decide which angles are most effective, and coaches will review the action with sailors. Summer Series #2 was particularly tricky, with big shifts and pressure changes, which are characteristic of this SSW direction in La Playa. Can you see the puffs and shifts moving down the course? We'll also have to work on our drone defense system, as attacking seagulls literally drove us out of the air!
