Happy 2016!2016 Commodore Shawn Milligan
I am pleased to serve as your commodore for the Southern California Yachting Association (SCYA) because this year promises to be more fun than ever. I am working with CBS in developing a documentary of SCYA, along with finishing the race calendar that will be filled with interesting historical SCYA content. The SCYA 2016 programs will be stellar, so mark your calendars for those important events: Rear Commodore’s Brunch (January 31), Women’s Sailing Convention (February 6), and the Midwinter Regatta (February 13 & 14). We are also planning more educational seminars later in the year.
SCYA is celebrating its 95th year! In 1921, Santa Barbara Yacht Club, Newport Harbor YC, San Diego YC, Los Angeles YC and Los Angeles Motor Boat Club joined forces to create SCYA. I would be remiss if I did not give special recognition to these clubs who put SCYA on the map.
2015 was a great year and we look forward to continuing our emphasis in 2016 on coordinating, educating and celebrating Southern California yachting. My sincere gratitude goes out to all our member yacht clubs and associations for their continued support.
