Winds on the practice day ended up being twice what we actually sailed in so, as usual, Long Beach delivered a crap-shoot of conditions where consistency and scoring no more than 21 points ended up winning the regatta. Team SDYC was represented by Kris Zillmann, Julie Mitchell, Stacey Szabo, Sandy Vissmann, Lisa-Marie Terhaar, Tiffany Billings, Alexa Cavalieri, Kim Standford, Kym Kapalla, Lois Harrington, and Gigi Mitchell and finished fifth in the event.Read Article >>
