Coming events


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, Laser) 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. Register online here: https://www.regattatoolbox.com/eventDetails?eventID=N5R41s4eFg First start will be at noon, so plan to arrive around 10:30 to rig and get ready to go.  

April 14-15 – Perry Series #4 at SDYC (C420) The final Perry Series for the 2017-2018 school year.  Regatta info: https://www.regattatoolbox.com/eventDetails?eventID=9bhRRqn5E4  

April 14-15 – Earl Elms Memorial Regatta at MBYC (Sabots, Snipes) 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!
