Participation at Cal Race Week continues to be a highlight for many boats as more and more racers discover the pleasure of late spring sailing in Marina del Rey, with afternoon breezes in the low to mid-teens and perfect temperatures for racing around the buoys.
CYC expects many one-design classes to return in 2016 including the J109, J105, J80, J70, Martin 242, J24, Viper 640, Tartan 101, Santana 30/30 and Open 5.70 boats.
PHRF classes are open to boats with ratings 180 or lower under SoCal PHRF. Displacement and performance factors will be considered when establishing handicap classes in an effort to provide like-racing for competitors.
Come see why California Yacht Club has won US SAILING’s St. Petersburg trophy for excellence in race management three times in recent years! Multiple venues with separate start/finish lines will minimize interference between boats in different classes and insure that most of your time on the water will be spent racing. The weekend’s hospitality will be a fitting complement to the on-the-water competition. There will be entertainment both days, with hosted beverages on the docks and a no-host BBQ on Saturday and complimentary beverages with hors d’oeuvres at the trophy presentation on Sunday.
