Team MBYC News and Upcoming Events

SDAYC Winter Circuit Series Standings
MBYC Juniors hosted both SDAYC Winter Circuit events on Valentine's weekend with Sabots on Saturday and C420s on Sunday. Sixty-six Sabots from local area clubs raced out in front of the club in breeze that settled nicely for a great day of sailing. Team MBYC had a whopping 28 sailors on the water! Highlights: Shane 3rd in A Fleet, Carlin and Kai 4th and 5th respectively in C1, Claire and Josh 4th and 5th respectively in C2 and in C3s, and Christopher and McKayla were 1st and 3rd in C3s earning BOTH of them a fleet move-up and the traditional swim:) SABOT RESULTS

On Sunday, 17 C420 teams enjoyed rather epic conditions on Mission Bay for the 3rd of 4 race days in the Winter Circuit series. MBYC had 9 boats on the water and we were super stoked to have a few newer teams out. We also were finally able to get our four NEW boats launched with a little ceremony. Oakley and Caylin had solid finishes to win the day by 8 points over Cole and Shea in 2nd and current series leaders Owen and Allie finished 5th, enough to keep their spot at the top of the searies leaderboard. Breaking into the top half were Shane/Patrick in 6th and Paige/Carlin in 8th. Go Team MBYC! C420 RESULTS
TEAM MBYC HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK!!
We'd like to take this chance to congratulate Santi for his spectacular 2nd place finish in the 32 boat fleet O'Pen Skiff MidWinters this past weekend! Sunday's racing was especially challenging starting with a wildly different wind direction and lengthy postponement, to lots of breeze and a course that included 4 upwind legs in the first race of the day!! With only one race left for the day, he could have gone in and taken his throwout, but Santi persevered and not only sailed every race, but with sheer determination, never had a finish worse than a 6th! We love seeing this kind of grit in our sailors and know Santi is an inspiration to the all on the MBYC Team. Go Santi!!!
MBYC MidWinters
 
Among many other fleets racing at the MBYC MidWinters, the two largest were the O'Pen Skiffs with 32 boats and the Lasers Radials with 27 boats. Team MBYC had Juniors Sailors in O'Pen Skiffs (14), Lasers (10 Radial, 2 Full) and Snipes (2)!

On the Ocean Course, we had four MBYC Radial Sailors finish in the top 10: Oakley 3rd, Allie 5th, Ben 7th and Efe 8th. Also, Patrick B placed 3rd overall in Full Rigs. We are so proud of our whole Laser Race Team as the step to racing two full days in the ocean is no small feat in itself and for several of the kids, this was a first. With just one more event in the SDAYC Laser Winter Circuit to go, Ben, Allie, Oakley and Efe all sit in the top 10 in the overall series standings and we look forward to seeing how everyone ends up after the final day of racing in Coronado on March 7th! RESULTS

Team MBYC would like to send the most heartfelt wishes for a quick recovery to our CYC friend, Mercy, after she suffered a knee injury from an accident on the Ocean Course Sunday. Please keep her in your thoughts. Get Well Soon Mercy!!

Inside Mission Bay, our O'Pen Skiff and Snipe Sailors for the most part saw more breeze than the Ocean course over the full weekend and with 4 races on Saturday, and only had two slated for Sunday. With a wild wind direction that most thought would not hold, the breeze just built and held relatively steady to get races going after an hour or so of postponement. And off the fleets went on a marathon Course 3 which included 4 upwind legs! The afternoon turned into a wonderfully warm, breezy day on the water. Congrats to Sarah winning in Snipes with legend Bob Bowden and cheers for our top 10 finishers in O'Pen Skiffs: Owen 1st, Santi 2nd, Liam 6th and Loki 8th. This event also concluded the SDAYC O'Pen Skiff Winter Circuit with MBYC's Owen winning the overall series! Also finishing top 10 in the overall series were Liam 5th, Luke 6th, Loki 7th and Santi 8th! GO TEAM MBYC!! RESULTS
