San Diego Yacht Club will host the Yachting Cup on May 5-7, 2017, ushering in the first regatta for the brand new Pac52 Class. The Class features two SDYC boats, Victor Wild's Fox and Tom Holthus Bad Pak, who will compete against Manouch Moshayedi's Rio and Frank Slootman's Invisible Hand.
Every crewmember brings their own story to a boat. One of the most impressive aspects of San Diego Yacht Club (SDYC) is the amount of events that the club hosts. Race organizers are out on San Diego waters for 46 weekends out of the year, meaning that thousands of sailors in Southern California participate in regattas large and small, prestigious and recreational, buoy and offshore, adult and junior. At the Southern California Yachting Association’s Midwinter Regatta on February 11 & 12, 2017, accomplished skippers sailed with their reliable crewmembers, which ranged from the current SDYC Commodore to military veterans who had only learned how to sail a few months earlier.
