Hi Team SWYC,
I hope everyone is enjoying the Holiday Season! With
the New Year just around the corner, it’s time to mark up the calendar for
January 6-7 – Rose Bowl Regatta at USSCLB (High School)
The third of the “varsity” level events for the year.
This one is unique in that there is a college regatta happening at the same
time and same place. Saturday night offers a unique opportunity to hear
about the college programs present and learn a bit more by talking to sailors,
coaches and other representatives who may be present.
January 7 – Winter Series 1 at SWYC/SDYC (Sabot)
The first of the fun and informal Series events for the
year. These regattas are a great way to hone your skills or check out
racing for the first time and they’re free! Arrive at SWYC by about 10:30
to rig and get ready to go for a 12:00 first race. We’ll sail 5 races and
head back home.
Registration is now online, so head over to https://www.regattatoolbox.com/entryList?eventID=gQY7KbX1GK
to sign up!
January 12 – After School Activities Start Up!
Winter breaks are over and school is back in session.
If you’re back in school, then it’s time to come down to the Club on Fridays
and get out on the water! Come on down and have some fun fishing and
January 13 – Shadden Series #3 at SDYC (CFJ)
The third installment of the ever popular Shadden
series. These regattas typically draw a crowd of 40+ boats and gives
racers a chance to fly a spinnaker.

January 14 – SDAYC Junior Installation Dinner at SWYC
Each year SDAYC clubs get together to celebrate the new
year. We’ll hand out the trophies for each of the SDAYC Luff In Series
and recognize the Junior Boards at each of the Clubs. We’ll have a cool
guest speaker, some great food and lots of fun. Anyone is welcome to
attend but our Junior Board is expected. Details and registration for the
event can be found here: https://sdyc.org/calendar/event/sdayc-junior-installation-dinner18
January 14 – 15 – Harold Adams Team Race Classic at SDYC
(CFJ – Team Racing)
This is a highly competitive, action packed regatta.
Well over 50 races are scheduled for the weekend in a format that provides
quick, 10 minute, short courses with three boats on one team competing against
three boats on another team. A round robin or few will be sailed and the
racing is intense.

January 20 – 21 – North Series #3 and ABYC Jr.
Invitational at ABYC (Sabot)
The third installment of the coveted North Series.
This is a great regatta to check out if you want to hit the road and see
something outside of our normal San Diego area venues.

competitive fleet? Check out the Snipe fleet and get started in dinghy
you can sail for the rest of your life. Let me know if you’re interested
in sailing and I will get you in touch with the right people.

throughout Southern California. This series brings out some of the top
sailors in Southern California and beyond.

Happy New Year!
