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.
Next year we are coming back to Huntington Lake July 12-15 for the first time since 2009. Let ‘s show up in force and compete for the championship in one of the most celebrated sailing venues.
See the 2018 Notice of Race
The NOR for next year’s edition of the NAC where we return, after a long absence, to Huntington Lake CA. It is linked here: 2018 C15 NAC NOR V1
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:
David Rumbaugh <email@example.com>
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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
