This past week, the Annapolis Yacht Club junior
sailors competed at the Orange Bowl International Youth Regatta in Miami,
Florida. The AYC C420 Team had four club 420s compete (and several optimists
and a laser as well).
Two C420 boats took advantage of pre-regatta
clinics and arrived early, while the remaining boats arrived for a practice day
on the 26th. The regatta started on the 27th and continued until the
AYC Junior Sailing had a great presence at
Orange Bowl, with most of our parents helping launch and haul boats at the ramps
daily. The team also enjoyed a fantastic team dinner on the night of the 26th
at Spillover by LoKal in Coconut
Conditions were pretty close to perfect for the
fleet, with winds varying from 18-22 knots on the first day and 8-15 for the remainder
of the regatta. Day one was the long day for the team with extremely breezy
conditions and three races. Sailors didn’t hit the dock until 4:30 pm. Day two was
also pretty breezy, however days three and four were medium to lighter winds
ranging from 5-12 knots. After two days of racing, the fleet was split into gold
and silver. The split for AYC was one team in gold and three teams in silver.
We would also like to congratulate all the other
AYC members who also represented our burgee in the 2018 Orange Bowl Regatta. Congratulations
goes out to Maddie Hawkins & Yumi Yoshiyasu for placing 2nd
overall in the I-420 Orange Bowl Regatta. Their results are listed below.
