Cal Race Week May 30th and 31st

California Yacht Club,

Marina Del Rey, CA

 

Marina Del Rey was the place to be racing a Farr 30 on Saturday during Cal Race Week!  The 1st day of the 2 day regatta brought unexpectedly blustery winds of 12-15 knots making for great conditions for these fast boats.  Competition was fierce and all fleet members stepped up to the challenge.  As usual within this fleet, the results were tight and exciting.

 

Sunday was anybody’s race and the conditions provided the perfect backdrop to test each crew’s skill with flat water and 5-9 knots of shifty wind.  Jim Murrell’s Huckleberry 2 with America’s Cup sailor Eric Doyle on board were able to keep their lead on the second day with Clockwork, Monica and Marc Skipwith’s boat in hot pursuit.

 

Our newest fleet members Steve and Mark Aichele made a strong debut on their boat Lunch Money holding their own with the fleet on Sunday.  We were excited to have them finally join us out on the water and look forward to seeing more of them in the coming months.
