SDAYC Winter Circuit @ CYC
~ Sabot #7 & Laser #5 ~
Our program is thriving! MBYC brought a mighty team of 33 boats to the Winter Circuit at CYC this past weekend with 22 sabots and 11 Lasers! A big THANK YOU to our trailer driving families who helped make it happen - Painter, Sarouhan, Markworth, Kozak, Fretwell, Shand, Henderson and Janes.
Saturday was for Sabots and MBYC finished out the day with THREE sailors to throw-in celebrating their fleet promotions! Liam, having spent only TWO race days in C1, went ahead and won both of them and stormed his way into B fleet without blinking. In C3s, Sean and Loki both earned their second wins earning them their move-ups to C2. Other C3s Braden, Alex K and Kai all broke into the top 10 at 5th, 7th and 9th respectively. Ashley and Alex M continue to show improvement finding themselves mingling with the top of the pack several times over the 5 races. Watch out for these two as they are both talented and determined sailors who make us proud with each new step they take in their racing adventures. The conditions for the C3s were incredibly tricky with wild gusts being thrown at them from between the giant towers at the top of the course. We used baseball as our analogy for the conditions: you had to stay on your toes, ready to react to whatever pitch was about to be thrown or as a fielder, whatever ball might be coming your way:)
In the A/B/C1 combo fleet of 15 boats, Owen, Paige and Liam took 1st, 2nd and 4th overall. And in the largest fleet of the event, C2s, McKayla and Isabella absolutely ROCKED the day placing 2nd and 3rd overall!!
Sunday, the 26 boat Lasers fleet headed out to South Bay where they got 4 solid races in. MBYCs top finishers were Allie 4th, Oakley 5th, Ben 6th, Efe 9th and Garrett 10th, clinching half the top 10 positions for Team MBYC!
This also marked the final event of the 2021 Laser Winter Circuit Series and after 5 regattas and 45 total participating sailors, our dedictaed and determined superstars Allie, Ben, Oakley and Efe took 3rd, 4th, 5th and 7th respectively overall!! Go Team MBYC!!
