Team MBYC News and Upcoming Events

Final 2021 SDAYC-JAC Winter Circuit Results
 
The 2021 SDAYC-JAC Winter Circuit finished this weekend with Sabots at the infamous Earl Elms Regatta at MBYC. The series was "invented" by our area yacht club directors to give our sailors the opportunity during this wildly unprecedented year to get some fun, competitive racing in and interact safely with friends without having to leave town. Sailors raced in Sabots, Lasers, O'Pen Skiffs and C420s over the past 3 months in a total of 20 events! MBYC's performance was nothing short of SPECTACULAR with more sailors participating than any other club AND winning the HIGH POINT club competition by over 1,000 points!! As events open up farther outside the SDAYC area, we have more kids than ever involved and are excited for what our Advanced Race Team will be doing in the coming months.

2021 Earl Elms Memorial Regatta

Skies started a little grey Saturday morning, but soon the clouds parted and the sun was shining for the rest of the weekend! 76 boats entered this annual favorite regatta honoring the late Earl Elms, a legend in the sailing world. Earl won 5 consecutive US Snipe Nationals and 2 consecutive Snipe World Championships! The regatta is sailed in Snipes and Sabots, both hard chined hull designs.

MBYC Juniors had 32 sailors on the water, with 26 in Sabots and another 6 crewing in Snipes. We enjoyed standout performances in EVERY fleet: 
  • A-C1 Combo Fleet: Owen and Liam finished 2nd and 3rd overall in the 23 boat fleet with Liam winning B to move him to A and Kai 2nd in C1.
  • C2 Fleet: Jonah 2nd, Clare 3rd, Sean 5th, Isabella 6th, Santi 7th and Elli 8th out of 27 boats!!
  • C3 Fleet: Braden 3rd, Alex K 4th, Alexander M 5th and Kai 6th of 15!!
We'd like to send a great big shoutout to our newest racer Hugo!! At his very first official event, Hugo not only finished EVERY race, but showed improvement throughout the weekend as he got more comfortable navigating the crowded course. He finished the regatta on a high note, breaking into the top 10 in the last race! We are so proud of you Hugo and thrilled to have you part of Team MBYC!!

Note to Sailors and Parents -
 
Conditions can get CHILLY on breezier days even as we head into Spring. Please be sure sailors pack appropriate gear for sailing classes and regattas: spraytops, gloves, boots, wetsuits etc. If you have questions about clothing, let us know and we can help you out!

Also, please LABEL all your gear CLEARLY as the kids leave A LOT of stuff around.
