Dana Point Yacht Club hosts Year End Regatta to conclude 2018 sailing year

The final racing event will break down classes based on the number and types of entries.

DANA POINT—The last race of the year for Dana Point Yacht Club (DPYC) will take place at 11:55 a.m. on Dec. 8. DPYC’s Year End Regatta is a culmination of 2018’s racing events and a chance to hit the open waters one last time before 2019 is here.

According to the Notice of Race, “Class breaks will be based on the type and number of entries and will be handed out at the skipper’s meeting along with the order of start.”

The regatta is open to members of any yacht club or organization recognized by U.S. Sailing or SCYA, and who is in good standing with their club.

Before the race begins, a skippers’ meeting will take place at 9:30 a.m. At this time, the race course will also be decided and passed out to competitors.

Highly anticipated classes include PHRF A, PHRF B and the non-spinnaker category. However, one-design classes may also be assigned depending on the participation level and if the minimum five boats of the same class enter.

Entry fee for the regatta is $35. Participants must fill out an entry form by Fri., Dec. 7 at 9 p.m. The race committee may accept late entries; however, it will be on a discretionary basis.

Trophies will be awarded as soon as the races finish for the day.
