DANA POINT – Dana West Yacht Club had a good turnout for its 19th annual Charity Regatta, June 3-5, with several racers taking home wins after three days of racing.
Lack of wind and an east to west current led to changing the starting line to Mark L off Aliso Creek. Luckily winds picked up for the last two days of racing.
