Spring C420 Ocean Regatta at SDYC
Team MBYC had 6 boats at the 22 boat Spring C420 Ocean Regatta out of SDYC. Competition was as good as it gets with a National Champion in the mix as well as many teams who are not only older, but have a lot more experience under their belts. This was probably the highest level event yet for nearly all our team. Highlighting that this is just the beginning for our young group, MBYC had 5 of the 7 U16 teams at the event, with Owen/Allie winning the U16 division finishing 4 of the 6 races in the single digits with an unfortunate rudder break that caused one DNF. We also want to give an extra shout out to Liam who sailed his first C420 regatta ever. Being thrown into the mix at this event was especially challenging and he and his crew Carlin handled it like champs. The weekend saw plenty of breezy moments and our teams showed courage and perseverance time and time again! Reports of giant appetites and exhausted kids by Sunday night was a sure sign of a great weekend. With two training sessions and a big event on the horizon, we are super excited for our Spring C420 adventures! Team MBYC Boats: Cole/Shea, Indigo/Thomas, Kaden/Alex, Max/Efe, Liam/Carlin and Owen/Allie.
Watch for several of these teams to be training hard for the upcoming even bigger event, the Perry Champs/Bemis Qualifiers at Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club, May 15-16.
