2017 Coronado 15 North American Championship Regatta a Big Success – Thanks!

On behalf of the Coronado 15 National Association and the regatta competitors, I’d like to extend our appreciation and thanks to the Half Moon Bay Yacht Club for hosting this regatta and, also, to its fantastic volunteers for making this 50th Anniversary 2017 North American Championship Regatta such a big success.  Especially, I’d like to thank: Mike Day and his NAC Regatta Committee (Lucy Gillies, Connie Malach, Scott Pyne, John Powell, Charlie Quest and Joe Rockmore) for all their hard work, which started well over nine months ago; Sylvia Teng for creating the C15 logo used on the mugs, T-shirts and awards; Lucy Gillies for researching and obtaining the awards and swag; Charlie Quest for providing C15s for out of town competitors, and his “Kaisen” as the RC boat; Lisa Fernandez for keeping track of all the competition and meal registrations.  Also, a big thank you to the NAC Race Committee for running four days of racing in an efficient and timely manner.  Kelly Pike deserves special kudos for making sure that the marks and safety boats were prepared and checked out well in advance of the racing, ensuring that there were no last minute issues.  A special thank you to Chef Denise de Somer, for creating and organizing such great meals and for keeping us well fed.  And, a big thank you to all those involved that I didn’t mention here, but should have; we couldn’t have done this without you.

Thank you HMBYC,

John P. Eurich

NAC 2017 returns to Half Moon Bay August 11-13

50 Years of Sailing and Racing Fun
2017 is the year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Coronado 15 dinghy.  50 years ago hull #1 was launched and as a testament to the longevity of this class of sailing boat, #1 is still with us and will be racing in the 2017 Coronado 15 NAC.  Charlie Quest, Half Moon Bay Yacht Club’s Fleet 15 captain, rescued #1 in 2013, restored her, and surprised everyone by racing her in the 2014 C15 NAC, and also 2015 and 2016.

 The Half Moon Bay Yacht Club (HMBYC) is hosting the Coronado 15 North American Championship Regatta this year, and for many months now the C15 NAC Regatta Committee has been working hard to make this year’s championship a big success – August 11-13. For more information, follow the link to the event page on the HMBYC.org calendar.

I have great memories of past regattas in HMB. Sailing inside the harbor offers plenty of opportunities for strategic decisions on whether to go left or right, close to the pier or close to the break water.

Pre-NAC 2017 Regattas in Half-Moon Bay

In preparation for the 2017 NAC, the HMBYC has scheduled two 2-day regattas: Commodore’s Cup (May 13-14) and Purissima Cup (Jul 8-9).  Both these regattas will be using the same rules and Racing Committee (RC) that will be used at the 2017 C15 NAC.  Thus, these events will give the participants and the RC a chance to practice in the same environment as the NAC.

Please, let your fellow C15 racers know about these regattas and that they are welcome to join us at the Half Moon Bay Yacht Club.

We’d really appreciate it if those that will be participating in the Commodore’s Cup, let us know ASAP.  It turns out that Sunday, May 14th is Mother’s Day, thus we’re concerned, because of this, that we won’t get any out-of-town participants.  Give us feedback by emailing us at c15s@hmbyc.org.
