Oliver Ernest wins at inaugural Oceanside Yacht Club RS Tera Regatta
Oceanside Yacht Club hosted its very first RS Tera regatta on July 27th 2019. It was a beautiful day for sailing in Oceanside’s outer Harbor with the wind clocking 225 and some south swell pumping through the harbor mouth making for some interesting starts and a few opportunities for downwind surfing. 9 skippers participated with 3 boats down from Dana Point and one from West Lake Yacht club. Emily Rychlik from WLYC got the first bullet with Alex Fisher from OYC in 2nd, but the rest of the day belonged to Oliver Ernest with 4 successive bullets to take the win with 7 points.
OYC has recently added 6 Teras to its program and is looking forward to hosting more events. Ron Dreyer, OYCs Junior Director had this to say “Oceanside Yacht Club was delighted to have competitors from Dana Point and West Lake. We’d like to reciprocate. Visiting skippers showed great racing skills. They showed us that we need to sharpen our racing techniques.”
