Next Years Regatta Dates Announced

The 88th annual running for the SCYA MidWinter regatta is almost complete but the committee has already begun work on next years event. We will again be holding the races over 2 weekends at an expected 25+ venues with over 100 classes being invited to compete. The weekends are February 10-11 and February 17-18, 2018. The host clubs will decide the best dates based upon the sailors desires. So racers should let the Clubs know what works best for them. We expect that many of the host clubs will be sponsoring the same classes as previous years. Let SCYA know what we can modify to make this an even better event than in previous years by contacting on of the committee members of sending us a note in the contact section of this website.

But before we move into next years preparations we want thank the sailors that came out to participate this year. This was a challenging year with rain, cold  and storms  at many of the venues. 4 of the yacht clubs postponed the event out of concern for the safety of the sailors and boats a move endorsed by SCYA. These clubs were able to squeeze in a makeup regatta into the already full schedule. We thank them and all the host clubs for doing a great job. Given the conditions we are expecting that over 575 boats will have raced in the event. In all over 3,000 people were part of making this event a success. Thanks to all that contributed.

Of course the event would not happen without the support of  the advertisers and sponsors. Their contributions greatly help make the event a success. Please support them when you have a need that they may be able to fill.

The Southern California Yachting Association, now in its 96th year of service and facilitates member club communications, sponsors a variety of boat safety seminars, club management training, legislative representation, honor awards and much more.

SCYA is a service-oriented, non-profit organization supporting the recreational boating and yachting communities.
