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.
