Hi Team SWYC,
Here’s the schedule for April. As always, please keep
me in the loop for so I can sort out logistics.
April 1 – Easter Sunday
The Easter Bunny will visit SWYC and we will have over 500
eggs on the lawn and in the surrounding area. Flyer attached.
April 7 – SDAYC Single-handed Clinic at SDYC (Sabot,
Similar to the clinic that was run back in November, SDAYC
is working together to get another racing clinic for all to enhance their
skills. We’re following the clinic up with the second Spring Series on
Sunday, 4/8. The clinic will be $40 per sailor.
Details for the clinic can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TI5DVZs-v1MEtBB3KeKfznE45T3wPn8V/view
April 8 – Spring Series at SWYC/SDYC (Sabot)
The second spring series and mean to be associated with the
clinic on Saturday. A good chance to get out on the racecourse and
improve your skills.

April 14-15 – Earl Elms Memorial Regatta at MBYC (Sabots,
This regatta is sailed in two of Earl’s favorite
boats. He was a three time Sabot National Champion and won more Snipe
regattas than you can shake a stick at. Regatta details are not yet
posted on MBYC’s website but registration information should be coming soon.
April 22 – Opening Day at SWYC
One of the biggest days of the year at the Club. Lots
of people and a fun celebration of another year on the water. The junior
board is expected to be in attendance and will need to be dressed in blazers.
April 21-22 – PCISA PCCs (High School)
Gold PCCs are in Long Beach and Silver PCCs are up at
Encinal YC in the Bay Area. This is the last regatta of the season for
some and the final step in qualifying for the nationals in May.
April 28-29 – PCISA Baker Elims at SDYC (High School)
The team racing qualifier for the high school national
championships in May. Lots of quick races over the course of the weekend
as teams of 3 boats sail against other schools.
May 5-6 – Luff Ins at SDYC
This is a change in the originally published calendar.
Initially this was slated for a weekend in April but due to some conflicting
regattas it was moved to this weekend in May.
I think that covers it for next month.
See you at the Club!
