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.
