Team MBYC at the SDAYC Laser Winter Series #1 @ SDYC

Report from Coach D'amy

MBYC had a great showing at the first SDAYC Laser Winter Circuit of 2021! The first couple of races were tricky with light wind and a strong current pulling the entire fleet over the line early, but our team fought hard and remained patient as the wind picked up. Navigating the shifts and fluky wind conditions, transitioning became the name of the game! MBYC did a great job adjusting between the puffs and lulls and hitting the shifts while avoiding the wind shadow on the starboard lay line created by the wind coming over the land. It was a tricky day of sailing, but overall, team MBYC did really well snagging 4 of the top 10 places overall. The Laser fleet is ready to return to practice and hit the ground running in 2021! Congratulations to Efe Derman, Ben Conroy, Allie Shand, Oakley Cunningham, Sarah Ozaki, Cole Tillson, and Mitchell Janes on a great weekend. 

MBYC hosted 58 Sabots for the first event of the 2021 SDAYC Winter Circuit!! With 22 sailors of our own on the water, Team MBYC had top 5 finishers in every fleet and saw smiles all around after a beautiful day on the water.
Our Sabot Team will be back at it this Saturday at the Winter Circuit #2 at SWYC. Registration and Information HERE.
