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 30th. 

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 Grove.

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.
