This event promises to be an epic event over 4 days, the last 2 coupled with the High Sierra Regatta. For any question, you should contact:

Note: While this is almost a year away, consider the limit on the maximum number of boats on the lake for that weekend and you do not wish to be the boat whose entry into the High Sierra is refused for going over the limit.
Since the lake was closed for a few years due to drought, it has been a sought after venue now that it is back to its legendary conditions.
From prior experience, it is a good idea to book a condo early.

I will post some old pics of Huntington sailing in this web site to wet your appetite. Mark your calendars!

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 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
