LIYC Spring Dinghy Regatta Report
Great turnout again for Teras, 14 youth raced from the Newport Sea Base, American Legion, Dana Point, Dana West and Lake Mission Viejo Yacht Clubs.
Deagan Willis from Lake Mission Viejo Yacht Club with 4 bullets aced the regatta! Tight scores for the podium, congrats to 2nd place winner Davis Willsie from the American Legion. Very close competition all the way through the mid-fleet sailors. Great to see Nate Espinoza from DWYC moving up into the Top 10, he’s worked hard for it! Sean Romano from BCYC placed 8th, in his very first regatta!
Congrats to Ryan Shay from the
Newport Sea Base in his best
regatta to date.
A shout out to the American Legion Yacht Club for lending boats to sailors from LMVYC and Dana West YC. SoCal programs have charter Teras for sailors visiting from other fleets at no charge to help grow participation. Simple One-Design makes it fair and easy for all.
Gale Pinckney, the new LIYC Jr Director and her team ran a super regatta with a new course format for Sabots and Teras shaped like an "N" rather than traditional windward-leeward. Made for quick rotations and 6 races with a lunch break.
Next RS Tera California Series Regatta, Saturday May 12th at California Yacht Club!
