Carl Anderson Memorial (CAM) Series

This Sunday is the first race in the CAM Series for the Spin and Non-spin Classes.  As we did last year, we will be hosting Spin, Non-spin and Cal 20 Classes on different Sundays, so check the schedule to make sure what classes are racing that day.

The Notice of Race (NOR) is available on line under the Club Race Tab as well as the link to the electronic registration form.

See you on the water.

Charity Regatta

On Sunday, September 23rd, Shoreline Yacht Club hosted the Cruising Classes for the Charity Regatta, benefiting the Children's Clinic of Long Beach.  We had 5 boats race in the Cruising A Class and 4 of the SYC Cal 20 fleet race in the Cruising B Class.

Although there was some concern prior to the start that the winds were going to fill in enough to actually get the boats started and racing, those concerns were unnecessary as the fleet had good winds and made it around the courses in good time.  One small issue did surface,  Mark 36 which was supposed to be the first mark on the course for both classes was missing.  Sailors being the resourceful bunch that they are, they simply rerouted themselves to Mark 30 and kept on going.  Apologizes from the Race Committee for the confusion.

Congratulations to Mark and Helen Thompson and their crew aboard On Eagles Wings for taking the win in Cruising Class A and Bob Moberg and his crew aboard Kate for taking the win in Cruising Class B.  Full results are posted under the PHRF Tab.

Long Beach to Dana Point Race Shirts and Caps

We have a limited quantity of shirts and caps still available from this year's Long Beach to Dana Point Race.  The shirts come in either a cotton tee (gray with graphics) or a dri-fit (white with graphics) in both short and long sleeves.  We have had several inquires about 2XL shirts and if we can get enough interest, we can reorder to add this size.

Long Beach to Dana Point Race Results

On Saturday, September 1st, the 29th annual Long Beach to Dana Point Race was held by Shoreline Yacht Club, Dana West Yacht Club and Dana Point Yacht Club.  We had 48 yachts register, 46 hit the start line and all that started finished.

Congratulations to the all the class winners, complete results can be seen under the PHRF tab on this site.  Special congratulations go out to the following:

John Risvold on Maiden - PHRF Fleet
Aaron Krugman on Aquavit - Nonspin Fleet
Lisa Doliva on Izablue - All Woman Crew 
Bill King on Island Star - Doublehanded Crew  

Starting a race before noon in Long Beach can be a challenging proposal but we got lucky with the winds filling in to give all of the classes a good run at the start line.  The winds continued to fill all afternoon as the racers made their way down one of the two courses that would see all of them to Dana Point.

Dana Point Yacht Club hosted a great post race party with live music and good and drink to satisfy all of the racers after a full day of sailing.

Thanks to all that worked on and competed in this great event.
