Jack Joslin at the C420 Midwinters East

By Jack Joslin | April 10, 2017

I have had the fortune to attend Mid Winter’s East 420 Regatta in the past and usually the wind in Jensen Beach, Florida is great. Unfortunately this year the wind was very light and inconsistent.  As a heavier boat we were wishing for big breeze. We managed some good races despite the conditions and looked to learn as much as possible with the varying winds. Overall it was a great experience to compete among the top 420 sailors and as usual the field was among the best. Having the fortune to sail in various venues only helps my skills and I am very thankful to the SDYC membership and the the Competition Fund for their support of my growth as a sailor.

Amanda Majernik Finishes in Top 10 at Leiter Cup

By Amanda Majernik | August 25, 2016

This years Leiter Cup was full of lasting memories. This regatta has always been my favorite because all the girls form a special connection. At the Ida Lewis Regatta, the same format but in C420s, everyone has their crew or skipper to talk to which does not necessarily make for the best bonding of the girls
