HI Team SWYC,
It’s time to turn the page on your calendar and get ready for our next round of events!
Another friendly reminder that summer registration is open! We’ve made some modifications like a one-week option the first week of each session, Starfish classes are doubling in time, Adventure Sailing offered every session, and an adult Laser class on Thursday evenings. Not only that, but the entire registration process can happen online!
After school activities are still in full swing, so come on down on Friday afternoons for some fun fishing and sailing! 3:00 – 6:00 every Friday (as long as Mother Nature isn’t trying to blow us off into the stratosphere!).
Here’s what we have coming down the pipeline this month:
March 4-5 - Shadden Series #4 at ABYC (CFJ)
The final phase of the Shadden Series for the ’16-’17 series. ABYC in the springtime can be a fun place to sail with plenty of breeze in the afternoons!

March 12 – Daylight Savings Time begins
Remember to change those clocks!
March 12 – Winter Series 2/2 at SWYC/SDYC (Sabot)
The second installment of our winter series. These regattas are a great tune up opportunity or intro to racing as there is no entry fee, 5 races are typically sailed and it’s a low-key regatta. Show up to SWYC around 10:30 to rig up and be ready to go for a 12:00 start.
March 11-12 – Gaucho Regatta at Santa Barbara (High School)
The final 10% regatta of the year for the varsity level events. The Gaucho is notorious for either being a nice, tame, warm weekend or really breezy. Always a fun one.
March 18-19 – North Series #4/Spring Gold Cup at NHYC (Sabot)
This is one of the biggies. Often bringing in more than 100 boats, this can be one of the biggest Sabot regattas of the year. NHYC is doing a good job of hosting regattas in their temporary facility while they’re clubhouse is being completely rebuilt.

March 25-26 – Laser and 29er Midwinters West
Lasers will be at Cal YC and 29ers in Coronado. These are a couple of sizeable regattas for each of the fleets.

March 25-26 – PCISA SoCal #5 at SDYC (High School)
One of the big two-day SoCals for the high school scene. These regattas have become huge, with high attendance and great opportunities for developing sailors in the high school scene.
April 1-2 – Perry Series #4 at SDYC (C420)
The final installment of the Perry Series might sneak up on me if I don’t add it onto the calendar now. The competitive 420 class will host its final of the series for the year in the 20-30 boat fleet.
