Team MBYC News and Upcoming Events

The MBYC Frosty Friday FJ Scrimmage #2: "Family Style" was a bright end to the week and we saw loads of fun kid/parent teams out racing into the sunset. 9 teams sailed 4 races with our very own Chris and Porter winning the afternoon:) -Results-

SDAYC Sabot Winter Circuit #2 @ SWYC

Team MBYC loaded up trailers and headed over to SWYC for the second Sabot race day of the new series, the SDAYC Winter Circuit: an effort by the San Diego area Junior Program Directors to provide fun, competitive racing through the Winter months all close to home. MBYC brought 12 sailors all racing in C fleets. Conditions were extremely tricky with the breeze filling in and shutting off repeatedly. Truth be told, our sailors enjoyed the glass-off coach boat raft-ups in between the few races that RC managed to pull off as much as the racing itself:) With only two actual races at the end of the day, MBYC was looking hot with top 3 finishers in all the C fleets: Kai 2nd in C1, Samantha 1st in C2 with Sean tied for 1st and Christopher in 3rd in C3. Note: While this race day does count in the overall series standings, per INSA Rules, it does not qualify as a move-up eligible day. Results aside, we are always happy for the experience and look forward to Sabot WC #3, January 30th at CYC. - Results -

SDAYC C420 Winter Circuit #1 @ SDYC
Meanwhile our A/B fleeters and others who've graduated from Sabots, had their focus on the SDAYC C420 Winter Circuit #1, the first of four C420 race days in the series. The Team took Saturday to prepare their boats, do some on-the-water training and load the trailers.
MBYC sent 5 boats to the event including some seasoned teams, while others were trying out fresh pairings and looking to continue gaining experience as they are newer on the C420 scene. Oakley/Carter, Shane/Preston, Owen/Allie, Alex/Sarah and Paige/Carlin placed 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th and 9th respectively in the 10 boat fleet. We're really excited to continue training with these kids and see a promising future in each of them. We plan to add a few more boats for the next in the series, Jan 31st at CYC.

Coming up next...

This weekend's focus will be on our O'Pen Skiff and Lasers sailors. Please register asap (click titles below for links to info and reg). An initial Regatta Plan email will be coming tomorrow, Wednesday:
