Laser District 25 Championship|
Alamitos Bay Yacht Club, August 30-31
On August 30th, nine Santa Barbara Youth Foundation sailors
made the trip down to Long Beach to compete in the District
Held out of Alamitos Bay Yacht Club, this end of summer regatta
featured ten fleets ranging from the high speed Formula 18
Catamarans, to the Laser Radial.
The conditions were challenging, with wind speed ranging
from 5-8 knots. The race committee did an amazing job and
was able to get seven races off.
Participants in the Radial fleet included Hunter Yegendorf,
Briggs Deardorff, Kieron Kavanagh, Carly Shevitz, Hanna Vincent,
Tucker Atterbury, Sky Adams (finishing seventh), and me (Oliver
Toole) taking the top spot. Garret Tessman stepped up to the
Laser Full and fought it out in the men's fleet.
I think everyone will agree that we had fun and learned a
lot. With a record number of Youth Foundation sailors competing
in regattas this summer, things are looking good for junior
sailing in Santa Barbara!
