Team MBYC News and Upcoming Events

MBYC Junior Commodore's Regatta - Lasers

With a rather wild forecast brewing, the Junior Commodore's Regatta was modified this year to include only Lasers this past weekend and moving Sabots to this weekend with more moderate conditions. And for once the weather did NOT disappoint for those looking for some big breeze! 24 Radials and 12 4.7s hit the bay for two awesome days of racing. Team MBYC sailors showed courage and determination throughout the weekend racing in conditions that reached outside most comfort zones. For some, top finishes were the goal, for others simply finishing races was the goal and we are exceedingly proud of EVERYONE who faced the challenge, pushed their own personal limits and grew as sailors and humans. GO TEAM MBYC!

It's NOT Summer anymore!!! San Diego afternoons/evenings can get quite cold this time of year. In the interest of FUN and SAFETY, kids MUST have appropriate gear to wear at practice. 

Suggested Gear - depending on your child's "discomfort tolerance":
  • Spray Tops - Waterproof sailing tops best, but rain jacket works too
  • Boots - Sailing, surf or scuba work great!
  • Beanies - Keeps head and ears warm.
  • Wetsuit (full or separate top and/or bottom) - Especially important for kids in Lasers, O'Pen Skiffs and C420s where they'll likely get very wet.
  • Spray Bottoms - Waterproof pants are especially good for Sabot and CFJ sailors to keep the wind and splashes of water off them. Regular rain pants work well for younger sailors.
  • Gloves - Sailing gloves can be found online or in marine shops.
