DEL REY YACHT CLUB – Seventy-four Optimist Dinghy sailors gathered for the Stephen M. Pitts Memorial Regatta at Del Rey Yacht Club last weekend, February 6th and 7th. The event acted as the fourth installment of the 2015/2016 SCYYRA Carrie Series, as well as the SCYA Midwinter Regatta for the Optimist Class.
On Saturday, sailors were greeted with light, shifty breeze, starting at a Southerly direction in the morning, and shifting to the West and North West throughout the day. Three races were completed in the forty-boat Championship Fleet and five races were completed in thirty-three-boat Green Fleet. After racing, sailors and parents enjoyed reggae music and a barbecue served by DRYC member volunteers.
On Sunday, sailors were again greeted with light breeze, ranging from the South to West directions. On the Championship Fleet course, one race was completed in light to variable conditions. On the Green Fleet course, three additional races were completed in similar winds.
This year’s event marks the largest turnout DRYC has ever had for the Stephen M. Pitts Memorial Regatta. Special thanks to all the volunteers, parents, coaches, and especially sailors who made this event so much fun for everyone involved.
