SCYA officially postpones the 92nd Annual SCYA Midwinter Regatta until February 2022
LONG BEACH, Calif. – December 16, 2020 – Due to the uncertainty of various Covid-19 related restrictions on racing in Southern California, the Southern California Yachting Association (SCYA) has announced the postponement 2021’s Midwinter Regatta. Next year marks the Centennial Anniversary of SCYA and it is with great disappointment to have to delay SCYA’s signature racing event – SCYA’s 92nd Midwinter Regatta.
Historically, SCYA’s Midwinter Regatta is held over two weekends in February and has consistently attracted about 600 boats and 25 plus host venues for more than 100 classes. Classes usually include PHRF, one design fleets, predicted log and, more recently, remote controlled model boats. Races are hosted by yacht clubs from San Diego to Morro Bay extending to Phoenix and Las Vegas.
Originally in 1928, SCYA and the LA Junior Chamber of Commerce teamed up to promote the Regatta as an example of year-round sports that Southern California’s beautiful winter weather allows. Of course, that is not always the case.
2020 is not the first time that the Midwinter Regatta has not been run. The races were blacked out during the Second World War. SCYA has every intention of resuming the Midwinter Regatta in February 2022.

The Southern California Yachting Association was organized in 1921 to provide a much-needed communication, educational, and organizational service to the yachting community in Southern California and Arizona. Our objectives are to provide a forum for sharing ideas, identifying and engaging in governmental issues that affect recreational boating, promoting events, acknowledging excellence, and providing a social and educational platform to build a stronger boating community.
