C-15 update / Shallow Water #1

Hi all checking in with a quick C-15 update.

Last weekend the Marina Del Rey fleet at South Coast Corinthian YC had our first second C-15 regatta of the year, the Shallow Water, with 10 boats three of them C-15s.  We race with Portsmouth handicap, also some Snipes, Lasers, Lido 14s, and I think something else too.  Sun was out and wind was blowing and was just a nice day on the water.

As you know the C-15 Nationals  are August 9-11 in Santa Barbara.  If you think you might be coming, please let me know.  I’d like to start getting a feel for how many boats and people we will have.

I have updated the 2024 C-15 Racing Schedule and will continue to do so.

For SoCal C-15 people, ABYC have noted there is a Stan Miller Perpetual to be awarded to the winner of the C-15 class in their Memorial Day Regatta, May 25-26.  Maybe we can “all” plan to sail this year?  And/or, we could pick a day (Sat or Sun) and make it a one-day regatta?  LMK!

(This would be an excellent chance to check out your road trailer – as you will need it to go to Santa Barbara!)

Evergreen reminders, let me know:

  • If you sail in a C-15 regatta let me know how it went!
  • If you have memory of going to a Nationals or High Sierra regatta – where it was and who  won
  • If you are interested in new sails – we can put together a fleet deal and get a discount.

Mainsheet Magazine Article

Jim Holder, our eldest skipper, sailed with Ole Eichorn #2150 “It’s The Water”, but he is also the editor of Mainsheet, Catalina Owners’ magazine.  He wrote this nice article about his most recent experience at Huntington Lake. He is an inspiration for all of us. I followed him to the finish on the last race and I hope to follow his example on the water for many years to come.
