Farr 30 Southern California Fleet Season Kicks off with a light shifty SCYA Midwinter Regatta February 21 and 22

 

The Farr 30 So Cal Fleet kicked off the season with The Southern California Yachting Association’s 80th Midwinter Regatta this past weekend. 

Only a year ago the Fleet was established with 5 boats active at this very regatta.  This year there are 8 active boats all in So Cal, and four made it out for Midwinters hosted by California Yacht Club.

 

 

The fleet activities began with a sail rebranding party on Thursday night, followed by an on the water seminar and chalk talk on Friday night with Nelson Stephenson, the International Class President.

Despite extremely light breezes consisting of 0-6 knots that proved challenging for tacticians as winds oscillated on both days.  The CYC race committee was able to get off 5 races for the Farr 30 Class.  Dick Schmidt and Dave Powers took top honors with 3 bullets, a difficult feat in the light conditions.

 

 

 A big congratulations to Dick Schmidt, Dave Powers and the crew of Frequent Flier!

 

What’s next for the Farr 30 So Cal Fleet…?  Spring Keel Boat hosted by California Yacht Club, April 4th and 5th we hope to have a strong showing at this regatta!
