San Diego Skiff Super Cup

Post by BWR » Thu Mar 05, 2015 7:28 pm

Writing to invite 14s other classes to SDYC on Apr. 11-12 when we will be having our SD Skiff Super Cup. We've done this event in the past but not in the last coule yrs. It is short course 1/4-1/2 mi. legs windward leeward x 2 with mid leg gates which have to be passed trough both upwind and downwind. Lots of races over the course of the day. This is a low key, fun regatta run close to shore so spectators can watch. Entry fee is $1 / foot/ boat (14s = 14 bucks) plus 2 6- packs of your favorite micro-brewed beer. Jrs excluded (unless your parent show up to drink the beer) The 14s have done this event in the past and had a great time. About 5-6 yrs. ago and number of 49ers came down to do it and had a great time as well. Just seeing if any of the 49er fleet (+FX) might be interested. Please spread the word around as I only have and few of the 9er fleet contacts. Let me knw if any ?s and if there is interest and how many boats might make it

This is truly an amazing event and one of my favorites. You will get more boat handling practice in one day than in a week of practice. Lots of close quarter racing and lay line practice. Unbelievable fun (at least if you are driving)! Regrettablyt looks like I am going to miss this one. Darn.

Brad,
Just for clarification, are the juniors excluded from the event, or just the 2 six-pack requirement?

steve,
Always want more sailors. We won't require the 2 6 packs of beer, maybe we should make them bring water of gatorade :) Now if we were in Europe! Hoping to get / create skiff sailing interest and nit's a great / fun weekend. I've invited 49ers and Fx's as well.
BR
