2018 SCYA Midwinter Regatta                                      

As we prepare for another edition of the biggest Regatta in the West Coast with participation of almost 30 Yacht Clubs and over 2400 sailors racing in more than 600 boats, we are very happy to announce many exciting improvements in our event for 2018, the 89th Year of this Regatta. This event will once again be run over two weekends, February 10-11th and 17-18th  - our weekend is Feb. 17-18.

One of them is the inclusion of two new Yacht Clubs the have decided to participate in our Regatta for the first time, such as the Nevada Yacht Club based in Lake Mead around the Las Vegas area and of Morro Bay Yacht Club based in Morro Bay up in the Central Coast of California.

 

The other huge news is our arrangement with Regatta Network to centralize all the entries and be able for the first time to have real accurate account of how many members are participating, in which classes and what dates. This will take the burden of many smaller clubs from having to tabulate everything by hand and relieves SCYA of the need to pursue these results for our final tally.

 

And finally, this year our Regatta will be enhanced by the addition of our Disabled Veterans and Disabled Sailors competing alongside able bodied sailors in various races and in different parts of the West Coast, providing them with the same enjoyment we all receive from being in the water and competing among friends.
