The month of July had over 100 unique regattas in our SCYA territory. Thenmonth of August had over 90. Summer weeknight racing (beercans) hadnPHRF events available in Newport Harbor four weeknights a week, threennights in San Diego and Santa Monica, two nights in Long Beach, and DananPoint and Santa Barbara. And if you were to sail a Harbor 20 in NewportnBeach, you could have raced every weeknight and most weekends all Summern- frequently with multiple races per day! All this activity does not include thendozen youth sailing programs every weekday throughout SCYA-land.nnThe annually anticipated invitational big boat regatta in Orange County eachnSummer is the BYC/NHYC Long Point Regatta to/from Catalina with anSaturday race along the island’s coast. Corinthian competition and Yacht Clubnhospitality is on display for the 45 competitor rented moorings offered.nAnother Summer favorite invitational is the H20 East-West Regatta. Hosted bynSanta Barbara YC this year, the West, led by SCYA member-club sailors,nvanquished the East Coast H20 fleets’ competitors.nnThe distance races of note (following races like the San Diego to PV racenearlier this year), includes the similar Seal Beach to Dana Point Race and then35th running of the Long Beach to Dana Point race that together attracted 60ndifferent boats. The Santa Barbara to Dana Point Race drew over 100 boatsnmany of which are Transpac veterans and qualifier hopefuls.nnAll of these races share great promotion/marketing, entertainment, andnorganization. There are boats with crews wanting to race, they just wantnorganizers to provide a little more than an RC boat and a bartender.
